Orange County native CORRIE GREATHOUSE came to L.A. by way of Northampton,MA where she spent several years writing and painting. Her newrelease, Portraits: Invisible Ink on Parchment, is both collection of proseand peek into the past and present of characters never defined by name.
"These words and images by Corrie Greathouse are fetish snapshots,whispers of hope traced in sheer lines across the sleepy landscape ofdesire. She is a torrid blue jukebox, a fragile lyric tempered by adream that refuses to submit. Something found in what was lost betweenthe lines. A vascular eclipse of the sun."
S.A. Griffin, author Numbskull Sutra
