About The Artwork

"Ctesiphon", 2014, acrylic and charcoal on fiberboard panel. A statement about history, both the persistence of ideas and artifacts, and also the way vast sweeps of time renders human enterprises anonymous and ambiguous. (For almost a hundred years, not long after the fall of the western Roman Empire, the mesopotamian city of Ctesiphon was the largest city in the world, capital of two Persian empires. Today, only rubble remains.)

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.
