Recovery Art

With nearly 12,000 hits on its page counter and regularly updated posts of the newest paintings that comprise its remarkable gallery, has definitely earned its spot amongst the premier recovery art websites on the net. Besides, Parker L has a special place in my heart, as we’re not only both recovering artist, but also because of his great taste in authors, amongst which he notes Hemingway and Hunter S. Thompson. No, but seriously, the featured artist of Alcoholic Outsider Artist is Parker Lanier, who describes himself and his artistic vision in the following way: “51 year old recovering alcoholic artist. Since I had my moment of clarity a few 24 hours ago I cannot stop drawing and creating things out of found objects. Outsider/visionary in the truest sense of the word.”

Aside from the 100+ works of recovery art that Parker L has available for viewing on the site, he also has a compilation video that features a collection of his works to the sounds of “Dreadful Selfish Crime” by Robert Earl Keen (Please see video below). Also on the Alcoholic Outsider Artist site are listings of future events, which include “The Folk-Outsider Art” show to be held in June of 2009 at the Talents Coffee Studio in Springfield, TN. Additionally, the site offers more info on a future full-length documentary film that features Parker Lanier’s artwork titled, “My Name Was Bette: Life and Death.” Finally, for those interested in seeing Parker L’s recovery art in person, it is up on display at the Anchors Aweigh AA Club in Key West, Florida.
