Example moves the world more than doctrine. Henry Miller

He who works with his hands is a laborer.
He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman.
He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.

My life is my message. Gandhi
We must become the change we want to see. Gandhi

rhymes with reason
Traditional symbols are an essential part of much contemporary Aboriginal art. Aboriginal peoples have long artistic traditions within which they use conventional designs and symbols. These designs when applied to any surface, whether it is on the body of a person taking part in a ceremony or on a shield, have the power to transform the object to one with religious significance and power----"Addiction is a spectrum in which we all participate, whether our drug of choice is caffeine, nicotine, morphine, sugar or shopping." ----John Nunley, from The Beat Goes On: Recycling and Improvisation in the Steel Bands of Trinidad and Tobago----Assemblages by DAN LEVIN-----

Concert exceptionnel de Giovanna Marini et ses complices donné au sein de l’exposition consacrée à Podestà, à la Collection de l’Art Brut, le 12 décembre 2003, à 17h. Leurs chansons populaires italiennes feront écho aux œuvres de l’artiste d’Art Brut. Ce concert est organisé en partenariat avec le Théâtre de Vidy-Lausanne--ody saban art brut---Le Musée de la Création Franche est riche de plus de 8000 œuvres, le plus souvent dons des créateurs eux-mêmes ou de collectionneurs et amateurs sensibilisés aux actions menées par cette structure dans le milieu de l'art brut et ses apparentés---Julie McFadden polarioid---Joseph Kurhajec / Objets en boîtes----fox---The French self-taught artist Harold Dupre was born in Duola Cameroon, Africa. His first remembered experiences as a child were of tinkling bells, exotic odours and the hum of tribal sounds. Fourteen years ago whilst in California, he began to obsessively paint and produce sculpture, drawing on his childhood remembrances and the influences of African and abstract art, to create a unique and personal vision.----A native of New Mexico, Benefiel currently lives in New York. He is an earnest, reflective man, who turned to drawing as a way of fixing externally the negative aspects of his life; of exorcising the debilitating effects of obsessive-compulsive disorder and his feelings of vulnerability. ---Chat tigré-----Madge Gill (1882-1961), an illegitimate child whose existance was long concealed by the mother, spent nearly all her life in London. She began to draw at thirty-seven, without ever having had any art lessons----Lena Vandrey---August Walla----gugging---Jean Dubuffet. Huella de una aventura
Tanya Holt abandons political correctness in her journey to some of the theoretical centres of the fading postmodern/postcolonial art world----Born in 1895 in Northern Italy from a poor peasant family. A worker in a ceramics factory, he marries in 1923. Until his death in 1976, he manufactures hundreds of figurines, bas-relief pictures and various objects accompanied by small panels bearing moralizing messages. He says: "It is the God-Almighty who dictates what I must make; I am only the hand which makes."----In Giovanni Battista Podestà’s painting shown opposite, the hierarchical perspective clearly indicates the ascendancy of the God Gold over human beings. The divinity, depicted as an idol, overpowers humanity: two figures are forced to bend in submission. In the upper section, the Latin initials of Christ signal the radical shift from religious to material devotion. A self-taught artist, Podestà constantly rebelled against the materialism of post war Italian culture, a society in a state of rapid change. In denouncing modernisation, he looked back to an enchanted mediaeval past.---Michel Nedjar Images-------
Summoned spirits, primitive homunculi, lonely dolls: creatures emerged, still smoking around the edges, from the alchemical furnace of an imagination stoked with the earthy rites and ritual artifacts of innumerable cultures; beings which appear, charged with their own magical presence, on eighteen works by French 'Outsider Artist' Michel Nedjar at Judy A. Saslow Gallery. This art is a combination of the primitive-sacred and the archetypal; of compelling power, and visual pleasure. It is well worth seeing. ----Born in Strasbourg in 1945, Marie-Rose Lortet began making collages of assembled artefacts from an early age. Having observed her mother and grandmother knitting clothes, she found the procedure came naturally, but she disregarded its practical uses in favour of creating ‘flexible images that could follow me wherever I went’. ----Hans Krüsi ,(1920-1995) renowned Swiss artist brut famous for his images of cows and agrarian life
of his native Appenzell region. Solo exhibit coming in Fall 2002--Carol Bailly, artiste peintre----
