The geniis of the margins

Our paintings are rather like sacrosanct texts of aesthetic quiescence and perceptive light, and must not be hidden away by collectors. They need to appear together in numbers and in varied combinations in order to irradiate their optimal values. As a countervailing ploy, we infuse these works with jinxing forces ('the geniis of the margins') that progressively nudge to allay and enrich their conscientious wards to actively promote their public exposure.
