Recent Work

Images below are more recently completed works. I also have some writing about these newer works at my art blog, In Vitreous Humor.

This work encompases the current combinations using plein air painting and found object assemblage derived from site-specific work done around the industrial areas near the textile mills west of Greenville, South Carolina. This rather unique approach follows the combined traditions of plein air painting and assemblage art in what I term Bricolage Realism.
