About The Artwork

"Forest Flower", 2018, acrylic and paper (painted in acrylic and then cut) on canvas, 11in wide x 14in tall. Inspired by both the playful experiments in color and rhythm of Paul Klee and also the music of jazz saxophonist Charles Lloyd, this piece distills the feeling of Lloyd's live performance at the 1966 Monterey Jazz Festival into patterns of visual movement. Sheets of newspaper are covered in painterly, impressionistic brushwork, then cut apart into individual "strokes" which can be layered onto the canvas. The overall effect emphasizes rhythm over form, but forms do still suggest themselves. This piece is executed on a "gallery wrap" back-stapled canvas, requiring no frame, and has hanging hardware in place. The painting is signed and dated on the front, and signed, titled and dated on the 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.
