"Ali II" - Acrylic on canvas. 16 x 20 inches. Painted 2007 by Matt Cauley / Iron-Cow

Hello, everyone!

This painting dates back to 2007. At the time, I was developing a series of paintings that had a Southern-Fried, Thelma & Louise meets Justified flair to them. Each painting featured a scene taking place in the deep south during the middle of summer in a place without air conditioning. The paintings were filled with heat, sweat, and often the grime of a dingy environment. Almost a crime noir for the South, though I certainly wanted them to be fun as well.

Several paintings were started, and most came near to completion. I have never shown them publicly before, as I had intended on developing several more and release them together as a series. Of course, that was a few years ago, and I think it is time to share some of the works. Click on either the image above or HERE to find out more details on this project and view the work.
