Lita Barrie talks to painter Dennis Hollingsworth.

Hollingsworth comments: "My efforts toward the fullest dimension of intellectuality in art is to read widely and try to learn as much as I can about different things. But I don’t want to express ideas in a linear way in my work. What I try to do is absorb them and try to sweat them out. I don’t want them to come out in a dumbed down in a merchandized kind of way. I want content to come out of my pores. I want to incorporate them deeply."
