About The Artwork

"Burning the Fields", 2013, mixed media. A painted and collaged background supports elements of wire, wood and natural grapevine, all enclosed in a box of painted wood. 12.5 x 12.5 x 2 inches (30 x 30 5 cm). A common practice in my childhood in rural Alabama was that of burning off the fields at the end of the harvest season, to prepare for plowing. In dry weather, the fire would often leap the fences and damage pastures and woods, but the custom was a ritual that seemed sometimes to transcend common sense. http://davidleeholcomb.com/assemblage.html

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.
