Coleman Larkin
Pike County, KY

Eastern Kentucky artist Coleman Larking produces collages encased in multiple layers of transparent epoxy resin, which lends a literal and figurative depth to the work, allowing past and present to be viewed simultaneously in an attempt to create a more complete and contextualized representation of this hard-to-define region.  His work incorporates both historical and contemporary Appalachian imagery, visual references to local popular culture, and motifs that range from the traditional to the stereotypical.
