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."

Above is the work from 1985 or so and Jody's daughter Eliza in the car wondering what the heck is going on.   It's not exactly street art. But if anyone has found this piece and brought it home, do please get in touch.

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.
