"Boogie Stop Shuffle", 2019, acrylic and painted paper on canvas. This picture is inspired by the music of jazz bassist Charles Mingus. I've used contrasting forms (fluid vs angular) layered into the image to convey the feeling of complex rhythms folding into one another through time. I consider this a painting, even though much of the surface is collaged paper, because the paper is painted first, then cut, then collaged into the surface, sometimes sanded or otherwise distressed to unify or fragment the visual impact, sometimes left sharp and clear. In effect, I'm painting, but the strokes of the brush are first subjected to the knife before being laid onto the canvas. The layering and distressing of the surface owes something to Mark Bradford, while the use of prepared materials collaged into the painting owes more to Jack Whitten. Overall, however, this painting is about movement and rhythm. The painting is on a back-stapled, gallery-wrapped canvas, and requires no framing; it is signed and dated on the front, signed, dated, and titled on the back, and 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.
