Flower #9419

Decaying Flowers, is a vivid visual study of beauty and mortality, placing the youthful curves of black and white nudes alongside heavily colour-saturated, yet simultaneously dying, flower still lifes. The fluid curves of the female body are mirrored in the soft shapes of wilting petals, both still bearing their organic imperfections, be it in the form of a birthmark on the lower back or veins tracing their way through the decaying floral matter.

I'm self taught. In 1980 I was born in Panama City, FL to a painter and a carpenter. I was raised on the Smurfs, Snorks, Thundercats and He-Man cartoons. When I was six years old we sold everything in a garage sale. I made an impressive $20 selling my He-Man action figures, Castle of Grayskull, G.I. Joe's and every little thing I had. I thought it would be fun to put my money in a small wooden box and bury it with a long white string tied to it coming out of the dirt, it would be my buried treasure. I never found the money. We weaved around the US from state to state in an RV. I slept above the driver seat, in a loft style bed, which I thought was the coolest thing. Towards the end of our journey we went through Death Valley. Running around in Scooby-doo underwear, it was hot, a bag of ice cost us $3.49 in 1987. We settled down in Scottsdale, AZ. I settled in NYC in 2009, starting a journey with my agency WSM and my wife’s Heather Huey.
