"Orithyia", 2015, acrylic, plaster and latex enamels on plywood, 24 inches tall by 18 inches wide (60 x 45 cm). In classical Greek myth, the rough north wind Boreas took a fancy to a woman named Orithyia; when his courtship proved ineffective, he simply swept her away. She became the mother of his two sons, the winged heroes Calais and Zetes who accompanied Jason on the Quest of the Golden Fleece. The paint is layered repeatedly with thin coats of plaster and then sanded to create the transparent veils of white, blue, ochre and pink; a frantic web of agitated linear forms are grasped by that cold, cloudy background, as if being engulfed. The painting is on lightweight 1/4” plywood, lightly varnished for UV protection, framed in a wood “floater” frame, ready to hang; it is signed and dated both front and back, with title on back. http://www.davidleeholcomb.com

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.
