About The Artwork

"Ravell'd", 2014, acrylic on canvas, 20 inches tall by 16 inches wide (50 x 40 cm). The title refers to a line in Shakespeare's "Macbeth" in which the title character observes that his guilt denies him the sleep that would "knit the ravell'd sleeve of care". I've used patterns of ragged hatching to suggest the idea of woven fabric, but I've also threaded it with blood-red threads that disrupt the pattern and "murder sleep". The image suggests both the ability of a person to pull together the scattered threads of a life to form a consistent fabric, and also the risk of disintegrating that fabric by introducing the strands of bad decisions and violent acts. The painting is on cotton canvas 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. 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.
