My mom was an artist. I discovered this ‘work of art” on my daily visit to 34°56’6.546″ n 83°50’23.958″ w + 300 Feet.
She worked in ceramics primarily but she also painted. Her work was most certainly non-traditional and this watermelon-painted tree trunk sculpture would have been something she would have done herself. I think an artist-student from nearby Young Harris College most likely created and installed it anonymously. It immediately reminded me of her so I came back the next day with the length of her hair I had saved from one of her haircuts when she went long to short.. I think this image would have brought a smile to her face.
Time is a funny thing. It seems so rigid and simultaneously untouchable. The Now is easy enough to grasp, sometimes, but tomorrow and yesterday are challenging to distinguish from simple dreams; about as palpable; more malleable.
I use physical objects in this project, which were once significant, drifted in importance, and are now mere symbols of memories: rumors.

Growing up as the son of two professional artists in the conservative mid-twentieth century South influenced Todd's perception of contemporary culture. Often being that artistic kid on the fringe of normal, his position as an outlier made him a vigilant observer of people, places, and situations.
A successful career as a salon owner, and stylist, Todd worked closely with people to express their sense of identity. Much of his photographic work seeks to find, document, and tell these unique stories.
For decades, Todd photographed commercially to support his business and in 2010 restructured his life to focus on artistic work. Since then, his work has been exhibited in both group and solo exhibitions in the Southeast region.
