VIEW IN MY ROOM
"Break of Day", 2015, acrylic and cut-paper collage on plywood, 24 inches tall by 20 inches wide (60 x 50 cm) Multiple layers of paper and paint create rhythms suggesting the light and sounds -- birdsong, wind, children's voices -- of a summer morning. The patterns are intended to evoke alternative systems of musical notation like those devised by composers such as John Cage and Morton Feldman, while the colors are those of the natural world in summertime. The painting was executed on lightweight 1/4” plywood, primed in white with acrylic gesso and latex enamel. The collage elements are attached and sealed with a UV-resistant acrylic medium (to prevent fading). The acrylics used are all Golden brand products. The completed painting was lightly varnished for UV protection, framed in a wood “floater” frame, ready to hang; it is signed and dated both front and back, with title on back.

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.
