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.

"Dorothy, The Last Day, was made out of order and done before her story was told. I took her back and gave the print a home in sequential order. She was cremated and her ashes are buried where her sister Helen, is buried in a family plot in Chicago. I could clearly see a branch of Marshall Field on one side. I said to my cousin 'Oh Dorothy will like that; she loves Marshall Field's."
