Jewel Loved His Mama

I am catching up on adding completed pieces to the website.  I entered this piece in the 2014 Folks, Art, and Faulkner show at the Union County Heritage Museum in New Albany, MS. The theme of the show was Faulkner’s work. If you’re not aware, William Faulkner was born in New Albany, Mississippi just up the street from where the museum now stands. I created this piece for the show, titled “Burden”:

The piece was inspired by a scene from “As I Lay Dying”, where Jewel carries the coffin from a burning barn   I enjoyed creating this piece and I plan on continuing this series of abstract human figures   It was selected for the Purchase Prize and is now a part of the museum’s collection.  It seemed a fitting home for this little guy!
