RK Rowell, New Orleans Member Since February 2008 Artist Statement Hi! Thanks for taking the time to view my new gallery. I am an artist living on the outskirts of New Orleans. I'm a proud southerner, born and raised in the metro area and I have a fasinatiion with all things southern. I love iconic images of the people and the sense of place, the high style in which we survive. Especially, New Orleans, a city where the dead live in houses side by side with the living. It heightens the sense of life. Where, we who grew up in little country towns where we didnt belong were drawn to search for vampires, gutter punks, drag queens and a $2 hurricane. In my work you might see some of my upriver relations, delta beauty qeens and bluesmen in sharp aqua suits. Take your time and come back to see me soon.
