when i went to search for a chair to turn into a work of art for the Atlanta Furniture Bank's Chairish the Future event, i narrowed it down to about 5 selections. finally i decided on a blocky modern chair and loaded it up for the trip back to the studio. when i went to work on it, i noticed that it was stamped "Property of Emory University"........it then dawned on me that this was a chair that i had specified for the George and Irene Woodruff Residential Center......and project that i designed in the 1980's
subliminally selected no doubt.
the piece is titled.
"the soul that is within me no man can degrade"a quote from frederick douglass

her mama asked me to paint this for her room. its about as pretty a painting as i have ever done.....but i hope she will like it.
Throughout recorded history, man has explored the connections between his perceived world of events, emotions and environment. He has utilized music, art and literature as a voice of expression. The beauty and rhythms of these connections seem to synchronize and play out over time to form a significant socio-cultural record. My work is a record of the connections and relationships that I have discovered within my own perceived world, through music, art and literature. This process may start on a somewhat literal level but it soon evolves into new discoveries and interpretations unbounded by conventional time. My marks and imagery form the rhythm of this dialogue.
