“Walk into History: Asheville’s Urban Trail” Video

It was a treat to spend time with many of the people responsible for the Urban Trail during the filming of this video. Having designed the “Transportation Station #20” and then a committee member of the Asheville Public Art, I have a great interest in our city’s public art. Erin Durham and her crew produced a very nice documentary focusing on the the UT narrative.

Mississippi Maps are Works of Art

In 1944, Howard Fisk completed the “Geological Investigation of the Alluvial Valley of the Lower Mississippi River” for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  For three years, Fisk gathered physical evidence mapping over 2,000 miles of the meandering Mississippi River. The maps speculate and interpret the history of this powerful waterway in an incredible series of colorful cartographic visualizations. The drawings are such elegant images of line, color and shape extrapolating information, data and empirical evidence. You can view all maps at http://www.radicalcartography.net/?fisk

“Losing ground” (below) has been a work in progress for over three years. Combining a variety of materials using geometry, diagrams and Braille, the abstract landscape depicts Louisiana’s loss of coastal land due to levee construction (Mississippi River), the oil & gas industry and severe weather. And although not necessarily evident, it is my internal push and pull through addition & subtraction of information attempting to bring order into a chaotic world. Finally after considerable time the vision reaches a stopping point.

Nature and human nature; the organic and the man made; biomorphic and geometric. The view through the horizontal blinds of the window out to the blooming Dogwood and Azalea is an ongoing accumulation of visual data that resurfaces in all my work. It is the relationship between nature and human nature and the response to these inspirational catalysts that originate in my abstract art.
