Texas Man
8' x 4' - Mixed Media on Masonite
Collage with Farm Security Administration Photograph by Dorothea Lange of a Depression-era Texas Farmer and an Emil Shulthess Photograph of a Skua

Durations are unique to each act of perception.  In the detail of Texas Man, I have placed the man with birdlike aspects and the bird so that the pointed shapes of the man’s hair, mouth, underarm and shirt pockets can mingle with the pointed beak and feathers in a unison of immediacy.  The gobbler-goiter folds on the man’s neck contribute to his birdlike aspect and act as a sign of negative contingency.  In the unison of immediacy, one can feel the man to be bitter, dejected, vulnerable, physically weathered and yet defiant.  The bird could be aggressive or defensive.  We can experience these various feelings as if they stemmed from comparative durations.
