On The Road
My good friend, the writer and filmmaker Jody Jenkins recently took an artwork of mine painted on a metal garbage can cover and mounted it on a palm tree along the Atlantic coast of Georgia.
He writes: "We managed to get your piece up on a palm tree leading out to Tybee Island, just outside Savannah. It's one of my favorite stretches of road and thought it would be a good place to put it. And it blends in nicely with the green and all."
I have a certain number of these 1980s works produced from a silhouette of my niece when she was about a year old. A photograph was cut and the resulting shape was turned into a stencil. I made hundreds of these works. The first one was called "the fall" – the only one that is oil on canvas. The others are on a variety of materials from seat cushions to wood planks to glass to mosaic. They are all currently stored in the US.
