Exploring Southern Gothic themes and influenced by his small-town Alabama roots, Mike Tidwell's work reflects the supernatural eerieness found in the Deep South. Self-taught and working in oil on canvas, pencil, and pen & ink, Tidwell presents lost characters in his carefully constructed narrative. Through is bold rendering of people and use of bright colors, he emphasizes patterns and textures while creating a dark and surreal corner of American culture.
