The Last Storm is the latest in a series of adventures of the Painted People, a Paleo-Postmodern migratory clan. Each character enters Jeanne Wilkinson’s studio as a Barbie, Ken or GI Joe before being assimilated via the transformational magic of paint. In “Last Storm” they mysteriously appear in an emptied-out version of da Vinci’s iconic painting. Just as the “Last Supper” was a symbolic and culminating event, “Last Storm” evokes feelings of a coming storm that will mark an ending of life as we know it.
