Hand-signed Original acrylic on wood cut-out, 3/16 thick, 16.5 h x 14.5w. Howard Finster in 1989 at Paradise Garden, Pennville, Georgia. Finster’s work is in many major museum collections and countless private collections around the world. Howard Finster’s album cover for the Talking Heads, his wild appearance on The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson landed him on the front page of The Wall Street Journal, a documentary by the Smithsonian, and many other accolades are the signature of this artist, and his fascinating life story. Howard Finster was a Baptist minister and eccentric outsider/folk artist that stated God charged him to illustrate his religious visions in 1976 when”A warm feeling came over me to paint sacred art.’ Finster was a larger-than-life personality with a devoted following long before he appeared on TV or in an R. For his speaking engagements, he wore leisure suits and had his banjo at the ready. He sang with a melodious twang, and he could yodel with force, but it was his compelling”sermons in paint” that made him a folk art phenomenon. Born in Valley Head, Alabama, Finster was one of thirteen children. At sixteen he preached his first sermon. In the 1940s, he hosted a radio program and wrote a column for the local newspaper. He led tent revivals and”pastored” many churches. To support his wife, Pauline, and their five children, he was also a bricklayer, carpenter, plumber, and took up the”hard times business” of bicycle and lawn mower repair. He had a great sense of humor, which he used in the service of the Word from the bible. He once said,”When Im in big revivals, about the first thing I do a lot of times is to get the people tickled a little bit, get their mind off everything, then I get the message over to em. In the 1960s, he began constructing Paradise Garden, a two-acre spiritual environment at his home in Pennville, Georgia. His plan was to display all the inventions of mankind. Embedded in the gardens cement walls, walkways, and playhouses were Bible verses, accumulated bicycle parts, TV tubes, mirror glass, Coca-Cola bottles, junk jewelry, plastic toys, a mound of cement snakes, and his sons tonsils”put up in alcohol.’Theyd come here and just blow up on it, so Id just take the crowbar and start pulling it off”. He made thousands of works of art that often combine written words with his own vocabulary of visual images. At home Finster would kick back on his studio couch with a chaw of tobacco in his cheek and carry on a stream-of-consciousness monologue for hours. Like a perpetual-motion machine, he seemed to gain energy from his own oration. We can’t guess the amount because it varies depending on courier fluctuating prices.
