About The Artwork

"Signal to Noise", 2018, acrylic and painted paper on wood, 16 x 16 inches (40 x 40 cm) Lyrical currents of cool blues move across the panel, fading in and out of a chaotic neutral monochrome background, suggesting the way we hear music over the noise of everyday life. The technique here, of collage and decollage, in which collage elements are glued down and then sanded or scraped away, layer by layer, owes a great deal to the example of Mark Bradford and Jack Whitten. There is also a strong influence of Paul Klee, who often used ideas from music -- rhythm, repetition, harmony -- as a basis for visual communication. This painting is signed and dated on the front, also titled, signed and dated on back, 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.
