Jimmie Lee Sudduth (1910-2007), Alabama
Mud, organic materials, paint/pencil on plywood
Caldwell Collection of Self Taught Art

Jimmie Lee Sudduth's distinctive style was a "sweet mud" mixture that he applied with his fingers onto found materials. When asked why he used his fingers instead of a paintbrush he said, “I paint with my finger ’cause that’s why I got it, and that brush don’t wear out. . . When I die, the brush dies.” In the early 1990s Sudduth was no longer able to physically collect his materials for painting so he painted with a brush and acrylics.
Come and view this and other paintings on exhibit in Cannon Hall at the Arts Center of Cannon County. Cannon Hall is open 10 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
