"Stand", 2015, acrylic with traces of charcoal on fiberboard, 16 x 16 inches (40 x 40 cm). The word "stand" can have several meanings: as a noun it can mean an ethical or political position; as a verb it can imply resistance or rebellion, or it can simply refer to the act of remaining in place. This painting leaves itself open to any of those interpretations. In this painting I relied on only a single dark color (a mixture of burnt umber and Payne's gray) contrasted with white. Subtleties of tone and shading are all achieved within that extremely limited palette. This painting owes a nod of thanks to Italian photographer Tina Modotti (1896-1942) who also explored the expressive potential of the image of the human hand. This picture is ready to hang; signed and dated both front and back, with the title on the 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.
