Carving video of my most recent canoeing commission. Notice that both of my hands are kept behind the knife action, thus preventing any dangerous slips.

OMG those #boxers by #billtraylor #Repost from @frank.maresca with @regram.app ... #BillTraylor. Untitled (Boxers), ca. 1939-42. Poster paint on found cardboard. [Private Collection]. @CBSSundayMorning is running a feature story on the exhibition "Between Worlds: The Art of Bill Traylor" at the Smithsonian American Art Museum (@americanart) this coming Sunday, March 24 (airing at 9am EST). Traylor (ca. 1854-1949), born a slave, created his own extraordinary history of drawing in more than 1,200 images that brought to life a world of chicken stealing, hunting, plowing, preaching, drinking, arguing and testifying, as well as many vivid representations of the animal world. His technique developed rapidly; from the use of simple geometric shapes to complex abstract constructions peopled with multiple tiny figures in motion. During the 1940s, visitors of Montgomery AL would have been treated to a startling sight: in a chair, next to a Coca Cola cooler sat a massive, dignified old man with a drawing board across his lap; he never stopped drawing. The mere three years when Traylor produced his entire opus toward the end of his life, were a key window in the history of American art. Most of Traylor’s work was preserved by Charles Shannon (his white patron and friend). After Traylor’s death, Shannon began a prolonged effort to bring his work to the public. Today his works are regarded as one the major triumphs of Self-Taught art. He is featured in numerous publications and his work is in various private and museum collections, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Whitney Museum American Art, the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, and the High Museum of Art. * * * #art #modernart #SelfTaughtArt #OutsiderArt #AfricanAmericanArt #worksonpaper #foundcardboard #posterpaint #abstractedfiguration #figures #boxers #boxing #twins #motion #cobaltblue #blue #RiccoMaresca #tvsegment #cbssundaymorning #atSAAM #RenwickGallery #FrankMarescaArt

Blood Line (2014) We found a low resolution video from 2014. We were able to grab several images of the work back then. Sorry for the quality.

Very bright red with a feeling of sun - what do you think of the colors in this one? “Fishing at Marco Island Florida” was drawn and carved in 2016, but then it sat in my half finished stack for several years until I painted it this winter.

What's the name for a species that enslaves and tethers it's self en masse for the entirety of its existence and then commits ecocide/Armageddon ? (Other than underachiever and fn pathetic 😎). #NoWarButClassWar "But it nonetheless still remains a realm of necessity. Beyond it begins that development of human energy which is an end in itself, the true realm of freedom, which, however, can blossom forth only with this realm of necessity as its basis. The shortening of the working-day is its basic prerequisite." Unmentionable Commie person "In every class society that's ever existed, the ruling element does not rule nakedly. They always adorn their rule with myths, themes and symbols to justify their position at the apex of the social pyramid." Michael Parenti 1% Pathology And The Myth of Capitalism"

More photos of twig people. I’m just holding them, moving them around, taking photos as I feel out how to use them in my art.
