John Lurie’s drawings and paintings express a disarming mixture of corrosive wit, raw emotion and unblemished sensitivity. His works bear the mark of an outsider, a quality present throughout his idiosyncratic career. To quote the artist: “I like to draw and paint. It is a river to me. I am not an Indian.”
