Stamford, CT – December 7th 2013 - A jar of gum tree green acrylic paint and a book of Native American portraits, were the beginnings of my two and a half year series of acrylic paintings, drawings and collages that makes up “A Very Wild West Show” exhibition. I have visited many parts of the American West in the past thirty-five years and this vast part of the country is intriguing, with its beautiful and sometimes austere landscapes. Cowboy and American Indian lore is full of myth and imagery.
I have taken artistic license with the theme and have given it a tweak and a twist. Many of the canvases include icons and symbols of the Old West. My images of Native Americans are composites of many of the tribes throughout the country.
The color palette I have chosen might not be picture perfect compared to the real New Mexican or Wyoming landscape. They are appropriate to my fantasies and memories of fabulous days and nights out West!
