This is a working folk art studio and gallery for a contemporary Southern folk artist. Blacktop's work is carried in galleries across the U.S. His paintings and drawings are a process of storytelling - bringing and invoking the past and spirits into people and environments. They are also about a way of life, about the struggle of life and the events that have changed our lives. His work focuses on contemporary social and political issues which include the complexities of relationships. Rural Southern scenes of people at work, old houses, churches, baptisms and the struggles of everyday life are his favorite subjects.
