My View from Seven Feet, showing in the Georgia Gallery, includes paintings and narratives from NBA All-Star Joe Barry Carroll. This exhibit muses about the mythical qualities sometimes assigned to a person who stands seven feet tall, suggesting their view may be different. This view, an accumulation of what is seen and felt, jumps into the deep end with the intention of conveying truth and honesty as a reflection on shared humanity.
“I am unable to say precisely what determines this composition of colors, shapes, and themes. Perhaps everything is forming at the same time, resulting in a complete story,” Carroll said. “I have been drawn to the art of storytelling from the time I was a child being entertained by my father, as we sat near one of those old open-face gas heaters in the Arkansas winter or on the front porch during the summertime.”
