"From the Faithless Time", 2018, acrylic and cut paper on canvas, 24 x 30 in (60 x 75 cm). The title comes from the the closing lines of the poem "Santorini" by George Seferis, whose title refers to the volcano that brought about the end of the great Minoan empire:

"... allow your hand, if you can, to travel
free yourself from the faithless time
and sink,
sink whoever raises the great stones."

(From "Santorini", George Seferis, 1935; English translation by Keeley and Sherrard, 1964)

Painted paper is cut and collaged over a background of grays; the birds are cut from old map pages and painted and pasted down. The entire painting is sprayed lightly with a UV protectant and sealed with several thin layers of acrylic polymer medium. This picture is framed in black, 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.
