"Ophelia", 2018, acrylic on wood, 18 inches wide by 24 inches tall (45 x 60 cm). In William Shakespeare's play Hamlet, Ophelia, the sister of the central character, slowly goes mad and eventually drowns herself. I've presented this tragedy in an oblique and allusive way, presenting the gentle, sunlit water with only a suggestion of hair or fabric darkening the currents. Although the hard edges and abstract forms in the picture's foreground suggest modernity, I've used an impressionistic approach to the water itself, with brushwork in greens and warm reds suggesting water plants or reflections. The style of the painting suggests the landscapes of impressionist painters such as Monet or Renoir, but also the more subjective interpretation of the narrative that might have suited Matisse. The painting is signed and dated on the front, and titled, signed and dated on the back, as well. It is framed and 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.
