Guy Clark was an American Texas country and folk singer, musician, songwriter, recording artist, and performer.
There is much symbolism featured within this work pointing towards several of Guy’s iconic song lyrics including: The Randall Knife (see the original Randall Knife in one of the ‘making of’ photos here), Homegrown Tomatoes, Texas 1947 and his album, Workbench Songs. An original rolled cigarette that belonged to Guy, a 1970’s Jim McGuire photograph of Guy and his son, handwritten notes and letters by Guy himself and 1943 and 1945 train track flattened nickels are among the items used to construct this portrait, which was commissioned by Guy’s family.
