"In yourself right now is all the place you've got."- Flannery O'Connor. To live and make art in the south is to confront its deep beauty and also its deep trouble. My work has taken me to live all over the world and has ultimately been a mirror of the spaces I have been in. Returning home to the south has put a very specific electric charge in that artistic dynamic. As a result, these paintings explore the nature of this inhabitance, and its relationship to place and memory.
