About The Artwork

"Alcyone", 2018, acrylic, latex enamels, cut and painted paper collage on canvas, 12 x 12 inches (30 x 30 cm). Inspired by the story of Alcyone and Ceyx, who were transformed into seabirds. The technique layers monochrome grays and whites, with collaged elements providing a low relief pattern, over which fluid repeating elements in stronger colors are added. The overall feel of the piece suggest the fluid surrealism of Andre Masson or Hans Bellmer. This painting is on a deep gallery-wrapped canvas, requiring no frame. It is ready to hang.

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.
