"Sleeping in the General's House", 2015, acrylic and cut-paper collage on wood, 28 inches tall by 24 inches wide (70 x 60 cm). Landscape, architecture and technology collide in a turbulent, smoky space. The title implies the presence of a narrator – perhaps the viewer? – in a place where he or she may not belong. Is the sleeper a trespasser? A prisoner? A welcome guest? Things are happening all around, edgy and anxious, impossible to ignore, but their full significance is hidden from the visitor. Over a background of soft, hot colors layered with gray, flat geometric forms and energetic "painterly" elements are bound together by a scaffolding of pure white frames. Chaos and order, held together by a fragile linear system. 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.

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.
