Dan Mumford rockets through a dark backwoods highway. The curiosity in the eyes of opossums, and raccoons reflects back with the headlights of his convertible as it pieces the night like a shining hole in a black canopy. The top is down, and into the air he sings along shouting,“Gimme a head with hair, long beautiful hair, shining, gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen. Give me down to there hair, shoulder length or longer. Here baby, there mama everywhere daddy daddy. Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair!”
Flowing hair envelopes the bulk of Dan Mumford’s work. It ties together not only each individual work, but his work as a whole, and for his constant vision Dan Mumford is Creative Tempest’s newest artist of the week.
