"I've waited my whole life to do artwork that incorporated my grandfather Erskine Caldwell's work. The show at White Walls was the perfect chance. He was the bestselling author of over 50 books including “Tobacco Road” and “God’s Little Acre”. The show was about my grandfather's work as a writer and my step-grandmother Margaret Bourke-White’s photography. This was the center piece of the show and was used for the postcard as well as advertisement for the show.
While I was painting a series based on the novels written by my grandfather I was looking at the lurid pulp cover depictions of seductive southern women on his paperback editions, and the photography of his second wife Margaret Bourke-White. I was interested in his critically acclaimed, socially conscious portrayals of the economic and social conditions of southern share-croppers, and how his publishers marketed his paperback books as soft core semi-pornography detailing the sex lives of their characters. Margaret Bourke-White’s photos also display an intense interest in race, class, and social problems." - Adam Caldwell
