Guitar Gabriel

Guitar Gabriel

This piece was made by permission from the work of great Seattle photographer John Gallagher: by gallagher.com. It's of Guitar Gabriel, a North Carolina blues musician. For more about him, his music, and the excellent work of the Music Maker Relief Foundation, please visit: musicmaker.org.

I was very drawn to Guitar Gabriel's amazing, soulful, expressive face. (By the way, the white area is not his hair; it's a hat he was fond of wearing.)

The materials are oils, cold wax, and altered papers, on a support of artboard.

Strata Two

Mixed media on canvas: oils, acrylics, pen, collage. I think of it as a person or plant, emerging or growing perhaps, with a slightly celebratory feeling—but make of it what you will!

Applegate Valley C/Artography

Applegate Valley C/Artography

This was fun! I mashed up a real topographical map of the Applegate Valley and adhered it to the surface of a rather large canvas. Then, out of the crevices and lumps formed by the paper, I invented false mountain ranges and valleys with paint. (If you look closely you might be able to see a little of the original map and print peeking out beneath the color.) The "river" is an imaginary recreation of the course the Applegate River takes as it flows into the mighty Rogue River (the first Wild and Scenic River in the U.S.A.) So, it's kind of an imagined-map of a real map that has become a non-map due to my machinations. A low-hanging moon/sun observes it all.
