In this episode, “accidental” abstract expressionist painter Alder Crocker, shares his personal story as a brain and spinal cord injury survivor with acquired savant syndrome. He is a tetraplegic that miraculously has the ability to paint. While his shoulders and arms have range of motion, he has no movement in his fingers. Together, these non-traditional faculties define the artist’s unique techniques and style. Jean Lengenfelder, PhD, assistant director of Center for Traumatic Brain Injury at Kessler Foundation, welcomes and introduces Mr. Crocker.
