The Lizard Cult

The Lizard Cult at Clementine Gallery in New York, NY. "...In the 1970's at East Texas State University, (now A & M commerce), Art Professor Lee Baxter Davis and his most devoted students were referred to in the local vernacular as 'The Lizard Cult.' Davis, an artist and regional icon who has only recently gained wider recognition, composes deeply personal and exhaustively complicated psychological narratives steeped in his own eccentric brand of fire and brimstone mythology. These richly layered ink and watercolor drawings reveal not only the vision and insight that made Davis such a compelling teacher, but the tremendous influence he had upon his students' ideas about art and art-making."
