William Dyce, King Lear and the Fool in the Storm (c. 1851) Oil on canvas, size approximately 53 x 68 inches, National Gallery of Scotland, Edinburgh
King Lear

Act III. Scene II.
Another Part of the Heath. Storm still. Enter LEAR and Fool. Lear.  Blow, winds, and crack your cheeks! rage! blow!You cataracts and hurricanoes, spout   4Till you have drench’d our steeples, drown’d the cocks!You sulphurous and thought-executing fires,Vaunt-couriers to oak-cleaving thunderbolts,Singe my white head! And thou, all-shaking thunder,   8Strike flat the thick rotundity o’ the world!Crack nature’s moulds, all germens spill at onceThat make ingrateful man!

Dobbins is the Director of the Clough-Hanson Gallery @ Rhodes College and also operates Material Art Space. Material is an alternative project space that has hosted the most contemporary, high quality exhibitions in Memphis over the last seven years while providing a venue for artists from Birmingham, AL to Tokyo, Japan.

From Dobbin's statement in the current issue of New American Paintings:
In our everyday lives, there are times when we are gripped with a whole-body pleasure, a spine thrill of delight when time seems to slow and we are hyper-present. I am trying to understand what it is about these extraordinary experiences of real life moments, in stories or movies that move me so. The way Elwood P.
