The painting recalls childhood memories of the rules and social structures we encounter in the classroom. The simple paper fortune teller uses one sheet of paper transformed into a colour and counting device with brief predictions or instructions. The painting reflects the anticipation, anxiety and excitement caused by the carelessly scribbled notes of the schoolrooms and boldly chalked statements of the blackboard. The little note saying 'never let go of your sisters hand' is a memorable and suprising instruction I read in such a fortune teller at school.
