Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

This picture is one in my pandemic lockdown series, Tiny Watercolors. Like most of the pictures in this series, this one is small at 8"x6" and framed at 15"x12". When I first saw this image, I was struck by the artist's ability to render the figure in space through bas relief carving on a thin slab of ivory. Although it was found in and ancient Assyrian ruin, it was most likely made by Phoenician ivory carvers for export or tribute. The piece acquired its patina by being broken and burned during the sacking of a city and being buried in the earth for more than 1,500 years. I used sepia ink, watercolor and gouache on paper to make a faithful copy. All materials are acid free and the piece is archivally mounted, matted, framed and ready to hang.

Artist Profile

Born: 1948

Hometown: COLUMBIA

Based in: Columbia, South Carolina, USA

I was born in Kansas City, Missouri, USA in 1948. From a very early age I began to draw and paint and now at 74 I am still doing it. After serving in the Army I came back to the US and enrolled in the Kansas City Art Institute, where I earned a degree in painting and printmaking. In 1975 I moved to New York City, where I had a painting studio in a loft in the garment district. While In New York, I produced a number of large abstract oil paintings while I studied and did research at the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum. In 1980 I moved to Southern California, where I had studios in Ventura and Ojai. During this time I painted a number of landscapes and narrative paintings. In 1983 I moved to Japan, where I lived for 2 years and studied traditional Japanese painting and scroll making. I had a number of solo exhibitions while living there. In 1985 I returned to Southern California and continued to paint until I moved to South Carolina in 2002. I now maintain a studio here in Columbia, South Carolina, where I paint every day.
