Mike Sleadd, born and raised in Kentucky, moved to Columbia in 1982. As the former Chair of the Department of Visual Arts and Music at Columbia College, he has taught various art classes for the past 34 years. Sleadd works from numerous thumbnail sketches, beginning a drawing with expressive gestures using the ink-soaked plume of a feather. From those initial strokes, he begins to weave an array of patterns into detailed, whimsical abstractions. Intricate, expressive, and sometimes humorous, Sleadd’s work is complex and full of texture, evolving over dozens of hours spent dipping his pen into his antique inkwell. This is his first clock. The piece is titled, “Playing for time.”
