My Parents Art

Thought I would show off my parents art work.

Temptations & Necessities, 70" x 51", 1979, acrylic on canvas

"Headley's art is an art of convergence and displacement; flaunting its idiosyncracies and boisterous in its unpredictable profusion. He seems neither content with nor contained by the singular incident, preferring instead the restless intercourse of a turbulent aesthetic. He is likewise unwilling to accept or comply with the incestuous and labyrinthine principles of art historical evolution on the contemporary scene. Headley's unselfconscious transgressions may well be a catalyst to the enrichment and expansion of American painting. "
- DAVID HEADLEY by John Deckert, Arts Magazine, 1981
Indian Summer, 2005. Acrylic on canvas. 18.50 x 19.50 inches

"Weather dominates landscape in the most seductive manner. It is nature at its most abstract--most violent, most serene, most mysterious, most prosaic--and it mirrors the changing emotional landscape within me. My painting practice is to work with watery pigments, I pour sweep, brush, drip, and fling layers of paint like clouds scudding across the sky. I coax pools of paint into translucent veils of color. Anchoring these ephemeral elements are gestural tree limbs, horizontal water marks, stripes and blocks of color."
