Untitled :: Pastel :: 1983 :: 32" x 48"


I have been going through some old work that recently came back in my possession when my parents moved. Many pieces have since disappeared which were never documented. When I find more I will post them. This series is from 1983 – 84. Some are pastels and others oil on canvas. 

I spent about two years doing these very shallow spaced still-lives using my mothers collection of elephants to make my way through the christian tradition in art. I started them when on a leave from college, after my second year at Kansas University. there is something to be said about doing work in your home surroundings with access to all the stuff of your surrounding life, as opposed to being away. Then again there is something to be said about being away from all that stuff. Just saying…

For me their is a clinical and an immediacy in locality in these paintings. 

I have always liked the “study” aspect of still-lives. It is an orientation to my work that I have carried with me throughout my career. Everything I do is a studied observation.

    I lost all my old work, almost everything I did up until about 30, when my parents moved.
