About The Artwork

"CloudSkyCry", 2017, 22 x 28 inches (55 x 70 cm), mixed media on canvas. In this picture I wanted to address a complex emotional state without giving way to sentimentality or hyperbole: the feeling is both melancholy (the rigid grids of gray and beige in the background) and also hopeful (the fluid blue and white shapes in the foreground). I used cut paper as a medium because of its ability to limit expression: the "message" is more focused, brushwork and palette are not a distraction. The surface is built up in layers, some sanded and polished, some left as is, to create depth and space, and the cut paper provides the surface with a tactility and texture that is unique to collage -- the viewer feels compelled to touch, as well as look.

Born in Montgomery, Alabama, and raised in the rural Appalachian foothills of the northeastern part of the state, my childhood was surrounded by the natural world, the rigid social and cultural traditions of the deep South, the distant rumblings of 1960's social changes, and the panoramas of human existence revealed to me through reading, music and art. Most of my adult life has been spent working as a graphic designer in Birmingham, South Florida, and Dallas -- primarily in the television industry -- where I was immersed yet another hybrid universe, a fun-house world of ego, transitory celebrity, and social manipulation. These days I live and work in a cabin on the edge of the Ozark National Forest in northwest Arkansas, decompressing.
