“I create to the calm light of pop philosophy using fragments of the written or sung word, applied pattern, and carefully selected images from a black and white past. I am a native Texan, from Monahans, TX. After diverse careers as an architect and an attorney, my artistic practice seeks connection by creating works that explore both a real and imagined Western past and document insights with colorful commentary on personal and collective contemporary social mythology.” – B.
