COWBOYS IN MY COFFEE
3 December 2016 – 20 February 2017

The Cowboy, seen from my saddle, is part Messiah/part Yosemite Sam;
the reverent/irreverent existing simultaneously in my version of the archetype.
I am a Texan living in Philly, mining images of The West and having grown up in a time when being a cowboy is largely nothing but a mindset.
