The pieces from the “1997-2010 Collection” is a group of works created during 1997-2010, which may have started from original commissioned pieces, exercises from college, or my own original ideas I exhibited at shows. Each piece from this collection has a unique story, and I hope to be able to describe each one in detail as time goes on.
Most of my art is fashioned with repurposed materials, which has also made my art eco-friendly. I got started on this concept when the 1997-2010 Collection was forming. The pieces from this Collection that exhibit this concept are the “Mighty Foundation,” “Lyle Lovett,” and “I Like Your Sleeves.”
For now, the one that I will point out above them all is “Mighty Foundation,” the mixed-media collage piece I mentioned earlier, created in 2008 for an exhibition in Scottsdale, AZ. This piece of music art happens to be a music sheet I painted of a real song “A Mighty Fortress is Our God.” I painted this piece because I wanted to portray a picture that symbolically represented my upbringing or foundation if you will, and with my interest in music, the concept worked out. I am a preacher’s kid (PK) and have been all my life. Although it hasn’t always been a bowl of cherries, I like to give credit to my father and his pure intentions for the values and love he taught my brother and I in our “Mighty Foundation.” The collaged elements, such as the rose represent growth, while the burned edges represent heartaches that I have coped with a long the way.
