Vernon Thornsberry paints what he sees daily. Now we get to share that point of view with a Very Good Puzzle.
Beyond just painting what he sees, Vernon is a visual narrator. – "I like to tell stories. I like to take the foreground or the subject up front and make you look beyond it...and when you look over it you are looking into a story", he explains. "So, it's real but it's also imaginary."
Although Thornsberry is largely self-taught, early in his artistic life, noted photographer and artist George Dureau mentored and supported him in the formidable mosaic that is New Orleans, Louisiana. These days, Vernon is a force of nature and a steady presence in Athens, GA.
We are excited that Vernon is going to be a part of this with us and can't wait to pour over his work as a jigsaw puzzle!
