My "Pikeville, Kentucky" drawing (pictured below) won a Technical Drawing Award in "The New South" exhibition at Kai Lin Art in Atlanta last week. The show will be up through the end of May, so if you happen to be in the area stop by. There is a very diverse set of artists included in the exhibition and a lot of beautiful works on paper.

Working on a series based on highway construction photos I took while Pikeville, Kentucky a few years back. I've always wanted to do a series on the highways that cut through the Appalachian Mountains in West Virginia, Kentucky and Pennsylvania. The sheer rock faces and deep cuts were a staple of the long road trips we often took from South Carolina up to Pennsylvania. There was always something awe-inspiring about them to me as a child, some sort of sublime power in the way they were created by brute force with blasting and excavation, almost like they are a surreal reminder of the ways man can push and craft the land.
