About The Artwork

"Morwong", acrylic and collage on fiberboard, 20 inches tall by 16 inches wide (50 x 40 cm). The title comes from the name of an Australian fish, a word that I discovered purely by accident while sorting through a bin of paper scraps intended for papier-mache projects. The dots and lines and overall textural detail of the piece reflect the style of Australian aboriginal art, while the blue "portholes" provide windows into the morwong's Pacific Ocean habitat. The accumulation of detail and collaged bits suggests the way a reef organically grows and builds upon itself. All of the drawing was done with a reed pen that I made myself from the wild bamboo that grows near my home in the Ozark National Forest. The painting is on 1/4” plywood framed in a wood “floater” frame, ready to hang, and lightly varnished for UV protection; 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.
