"Banjo Sketch 1" is actually a study piece for a painting I’m working on. It's part of a collection I’m showing at Luna’s Cafe in Sacramento, CA, later this summer. The collection is called "Root & Bone," and examines the connection between people and the environment. Most of the paintings center around humans or natural man-made objects like instruments being reclaimed by nature in some way (there are a lot of trees…I love trees). I’m especially interested in the history of the banjo and how it represents varying, often contradictory perspectives in American society. I suppose it’s also a contemplation on what can be reclaimed, what cannot, and what should be.
