“Yawing between gesture and smear.” (Ditto?)

“Painting isn’t dead except as a major art. From now on it will be a discourse of adepts, like jazz.” (Dave Hickey)

About JMN

I live in Texas and devote much of my time to easel painting on an amateur basis. I stream a lot of music, mostly jazz, throughout the day, and watch Netflix and Prime Video for entertainment. I like to read and memorize poetry.
