March 2016 visit with John Culver in Sparta, Georgia

Although John is known for ‘abstract’ painting, he recently helped restore this outdoor mural (dating from the time of the Atlanta Olympics) on the main street in Sparta:

A local arts project had proposed for John to turn these two abandoned building across the street into “Marconauts” (sp?)– futuristic space and time travel machines often appearing in his paintings:

Unfortunately that proposal hasn’t worked out, but John hopes to create a building-sized “Marconaut” or two on freshly constructed small building-sized structures he’ll be able to move from place to place.  These recent birdhouses are his first three-dimensional “Marconauts”:

A “Marconaut” is visible in the bottom right corner of the central frame in this untitled piece from 2015-16:

John Culver painted tables

 

John Culver’s insatiable urge to cover surfaces with paint has spread to the furniture!  John sent me these snapshots from his recent painted tables series:            (photos and artworks © John Culver)
