Artist’s State­ment

Coye Con­ner is a Texas artist, who works with dried, sun bleached ani­mal bones and shed deer, elk and oth­er var­i­ous antlers, in acrylics and mixed media in his 800 + square foot stu­dio, locat­ed in his work­ing cat­tle ranch, 20 miles south of Tyler, Texas. He cre­ates his art with paint, sprays, acrylics and alco­hol. Each piece is unique and has many lay­ers and process­es involved to achieve the final look. He is con­stant­ly try­ing new tech­niques and work­ing with mul­ti­ple medi­ums of paints, tex­tures and tools. His unique style is dri­ven by inspi­ra­tion from the cul­ture of the Native Amer­i­can Indi­an, music played in his stu­dio, and his down to earth bare foot­ed work eth­ic. He cre­ates his art at his ranch stu­dio, where he pro­duces what he envi­sions for each piece. Coye loves art so much, he is known for wak­ing at 3 or 4 a.m., think­ing of a new idea for his art and enter­ing stu­dio in the ear­ly morn­ing hours to place his vision into real­i­ty. He donates some of his art to char­i­ties for auc­tion, rais­ing funds to meet the needs of “at risk” and under­priv­i­leged chil­dren. He has only recent­ly begun to mar­ket his art for oth­ers to enjoy. In search­ing the world wide web, it appears no one else in the world is cre­at­ing the art that Coye pro­duces. Tru­ly UNIQUE, giv­ing PURPOSE TO RE-PURPOSE.

Coye Con­ner is a life long res­i­dent of Texas, born in 1946. He attend­ed Bay­lor Uni­ver­si­ty and Bay­lor School of Law, begin­ning his lit­i­ga­tion prac­tice in 1970. He is a nation­al­ly rec­og­nized and acclaimed, attor­ney, author and speak­er. He spe­cial­izes in medi­a­tion and arbi­tra­tion. In 2012 he was involved in a head-on col­li­sion at 75 mph. As part of his reha­bil­i­ta­tion pro­gram, he walked his Texas Hill Coun­try exot­ic game ranch dai­ly, col­lect­ing shed antlers and dried sun bleached bones left by his exot­ic deer herd. He began work­ing with the dried pelvic bones, as they resem­bled a nat­ur­al mask. Over the years since, he has pro­gressed from work­ing with var­i­ous col­ors of spray paint, to acrylic paint high­lights, and now to acrylic paint pours, adding var­i­ous treat­ments and adorn­ments to his dry bone art–MYSTIC MASKS. Mask mak­ing is his “get-a-way” relax­ation from his high pres­sure medi­a­tion and arbi­tra­tion law prac­tice. He is a Chris­t­ian and thanks God for the bless­ing and gift of his unique, one of a kind cre­ative art.
