“Sometimes I live in the country,
Sometimes I live in the town,
Sometimes I have a great notion
To jump in the river and drown."
- Huddie Ledbetter & John Lomax
The above is a classic blues lyric. It’s also the beginning of Ken Keseys’s Sometimes a Great Notion. It’s also the artist statement for Molly Vidor’s current show at PDX Contemporary Art, Destroyer. I really enjoyed the show. Five paintings, that’s all, each of them deep enough to drown in. We met yesterday for a short interview. (Actually the interview was longer, but Youtube rejected the longer efforts. I wish I could have included it all.)
