Joe Barry Carroll
From the venue:
On view at the Hammonds House Museum through September 18, My View From Seven Feet is Joe Barry Carroll’s musing on the mystical qualities some want to assign to a person standing seven feet tall. He expresses his “view” in the form of 34 large-scale figurative and abstract paintings that are celebratory, reflective, and hopeful. His visual recollections and narratives of his early years in Pine Bluff, Arkansas illustrate a pursuit of living according to one’s own agency, unencumbered by external interruptions.
