My orgastracts must make people stop and linger and wonder.
Otherwise, I have not succeeded.
I think in ink, allowing my paintings to evolve organically into works of art
that continue to reveal themselves.
My idea of what my orgastracts "say" is definite.
However, if your idea is different, that's fine with me.
A fifteen year absence from Memphis took me to Oxford, MS, Lawrence, KS, and Portland, OR. Presently, I work in a studio at Marshall Arts in downtown Memphis. Fortunately, some of my paintings make it here, to Harrington Brown Gallery. When not painting, I teach "Art of the Human Experience" and "Ancient Global Literature" for Jones International University and write short stories (seven published so far).
