About The Artwork

"With the thread of words, this gold", 2014, acrylic, latex enamel, collaged paper on papier-mache panel, 15.5 inches tall by 12.5 inches wide by 2 inches deep (39 x 31 x 5 cm). Language both empowers and limits the individual; words can save, they can kill, they can exalt. In this painting shapes that suggest letters, ideograms, or petroglyphs enclose and address a figure which is, itself, reminiscent of primitive iconography. The painting is on a papier-mache panel, 3/4” thick, 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.

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.
