Singles Faire: Intimate Gestures is a body of work by artist Jenny Walton that re-purposes instructional physical therapy diagrams to imagine narratives within attraction of the opposite sex. The figures in the works take on new meanings when attention is given to the subtle interplay between postures – what was once a neutered illustration becomes a situation of potential intimacy with the opposite sex. The small paintings in Singles Faire: Intimate Gestures were created on New York City and Washington, DC transit fare cards, and paper ephemera.  These bits of paper intensify metaphors of passage and journey from their original intentions as fare cards to works that develop layered meanings in body language.  A variety of techniques including media transfer, watercolor, and drawing were used to create these works into awkwardly humorous views into the lives of singles.
