Earl McBride

My process is rooted in storytelling. A story emerges, shifts, and morphs as the picture takes shape. Narrative and biography migrate into the process. Making art is my way of understanding the world. What interests me most is how we construct our selves and the process of personal and cultural transformation.

I grew up in the South in white, black and gay culture. White cotton, hot tar, Sunday whites and gospel music, The Runaways and Boy George, rainbow stickers and disco balls mix with a contemporary urban experience to form my viewpoint and my aesthetic. Art is my handwriting, dialect and a record of my experience of the world.
