About The Artwork

"Unwritten Language", 2016, ink, white chalk, acrylic on MDF panel, 30 x 30 cm. The passage of time, mortality, the ephemeral nature of organic life are all here, but also the durable nature of beauty, which changes with the season but does not vanish. The panel is sealed and painted with several layers of dove-gray acrylic, shading to an off-white toward the center; this is sanded and polished smooth, then sealed again and serves as a substrate for a detailed pen-and-ink drawing of fallen leaves, executed in a dense cross-hatch technique. Selected areas of the image are lightened with white chalk or light acrylic, then the entire image is sealed with a light dusting of UV protectant acrylic polymer varnish.

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.
