About The Artwork

"Voyeur", 2015 - acrylic and cut-paper collage on plywood, 16 inches tall by 12 inches wide (40 x 30 cm). The word "voyeur" is from the French, one who views or inspects. Writer Christopher Isherwood famously began his novel "Goodbye to Berlin" with the line "I am a camera with its shutter open, quite passive, recording, not thinking." In its modern English-language interpretation, the word "voyeur" often refers to someone who - like a camera - closely observes the most intimate lives of the people around him, but without a true personal connection or emotional engagement. The painting is on lightweight 1/4” plywood, primed with white acrylic gesso. The image is built up in layers: acrylic paint amended with plaster dust is alternated with cut paper, each layer sanded smooth and lightly varnished before the next is added, with details allowed to emerge or erode as the process requires -- much the way an individual's view of the people around him/her is fragmented by the stresses and influences of day-to-day existence. The completed picture has been 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.
