I believe in process, spontaneity and action. My style and interests are varied, as are the mediums I use. The medium foresees the style. The interest suggests the medium. My work combines formal academic painting and drawing with a strong interest in graffiti, comics, graphics and pattern.
This collaboration with Ken Sanders — UCONOCLASTS — brings to light the rich history of some of Utah’s most iconic figures. Using historical photos of the subjects, I have painted the first dozen portraits (Suite One: Literary Utah:—Edward Abbey, Fawn Brodie, Juanita Brooks, Neal Cassady, Bernard DeVoto, Raymond F. Jones, Charles Kelly, Dale Morgan, Wallace Stegner, May Swenson, Wallace Thurman [on the cover] and Maurine Whipple) in the fashion I saw fit.
UCONOCLASTS is also open before/after performances of Plan-B Theatre Company’s WALLACE about the lives of Wallace Stegner and Wallace Thurman (March 4-14 in the Studio Theatre at the Rose Wagner. Details and tickets at http://planbtheatre.org).
