Pieces of You
Personalized pieces of art constructed with memorabilia or other meaningful papers. Totally personal. Incredibly special.
Using his drawings, soccer medals, postcards, maps, Adidas tags, sports pennants, musical scores, wine labels, family photographs, and fabric, this is an entirely constructed portrait (no paint) applied to stained wood and covered in two layers of crystal clear resin.
Movable tiles contain allusions to girl power, flight, worth, precious metals, catching air, birds, and a found butterfly. They hang on a stand alone art piece of poured resin with copper hangers. Outside of the piece is stained a charcoal. Inside and edge are bright white. See blog post.
Sun Rise, Sun Set
In memory of Eric. Black mustang convertible, gamecocks, books, boys, music, laughter, stories, light and shadow.
Tree of Love
Huge 6x4 encaustic piece on custom panel. Includes pictures of the collector's three children printed on silk organza and embedded into the many, many layers of color.
Tree of Love in situ
Look closely and you'll see the western and southern roots of this family, from Georgia to Oregon. This is such a sweet family and their love notes to each other are the sunlight on the branches. They have their baseball, their Seahawks, soccer pics and UGA football. You see the lights of Vegas and the pledge officers in GA take when they join the force. Law books and old ads for travel in the national parks make the sky and the branch takes shape through maps of the Willamette vineyards and and the breweries of downtown Portland. There are even two dogs and a cat. I'm not sure how long the fish will last, so...
Music (including Hank Williams), candy skulls, law books, damask, maps, Paint, papers, and resin on Gessobord. Gray stained sides.
A series for a family with three curly-headed girls. Each piece has elements which are special to the parents and representative of the personality and interest of the girl. The first piece is for the drama queen. It has maps from Broadway (the dad is from NYC) and a night map of the lights of Atlanta, celestial images and Georgian hints.. The middle piece has sea creatures and map elements for the girl who wants to be a marine biologist. Sports interests, dad's Mets and mom's Kansas Jayhawks, show up. The third girl likes things balanced and precise, so she gets 90 degree intersections, neat lists, and graphs, but also images of native american head dresses, feathers and jewels, along with Colorado aspens. The triptych is designed to display together, but also for each piece to be hung independently, if the girls desire.
Hills of Light
For a father who loves to hike the north GA mountains. Trail maps and local flora and fauna illustrations figure prominently, along with the Canadian home of mom (maps and maple leaves everywhere.) Two daughters play lacrosse, so there are nets, but also some other interests: lizards, swim suits, and music. "Welcome to Holland" is a significant poem for this family and I found a travelogue from the 60s with this title, then used windmills and images throughout. Trimmed with birch veneer, covered in resin.
