A Stretch of the Imagination Paintings by Kodac Harrison
"Basically it is drop-cloth art." As a house-painter for thirty years, Kodac Harrison used one side of his cloths for his work and the other side for his art. Kodac applied interesting colors to the back sides of his cloths, applying the paint in as many different ways he could come up with, and it was all for fun. As a committed artist, Kodac never promoted his paintings, just his music and poetry, and that kept them pure. In 2009, Kodac had his first show at Decatur’s Sycamore Place Gallery. That was the first time he had stretched his canvases. Since then, Harrison has exhibited in numerous places in Decatur and beyond. The longtime Decatur resident calls his abstract paintings, “visual poetry.” Kodac hopes his working class art will Stretch Your Imagination.
