THE DOROTHY SERIES


This series of prints presents a visual biography of the artist's mother, Dorothy Kline. Following the concept of using "traces," evoking one's personality by means of mundane details, Wayne built her images from actual artifacts of Dorothy's life: a necklace or glove, various certificates, snapshots and letters.


Little by little, I located, collected, and assembled material about her. I didn't use everything. I selected very carefully, paying close attention to building a story line that didn't tell everything, only such thngs as she might have told girlfriends at lunch.


The following litho's are not the complete series but works that will tell some of the story.

"I wanted to show them as they were, arriving in this country. I wanted the shock: how they might look if one of those flash photographs had been taken."
