Artist’s Statement: Shown here are paintings by myself as well as artwork created by fellow artists that fall in the Folk/Outsider genre. Under a larger umbrella this genre is known as self-taught art. Several artists in this collection have degrees in art, however they choose to work in the folk art tradition. Most of the work here consists of a few of the new guard of folk artists, however there are a few examples from masters of the old guard, such as R.A. Miller, Willie Jinks and Mose Tolliver. Geographical locations of these specific artists range from the Rocky Mountain region, the Southeast, Southwest, Canada, and England. These artists, like myself, work in an intuitive style where feeling and creativity is king, while technical skill is more of an afterthought– much more important to “get it out by any means necessary” and move on to the next idea. Some of the conceptual themes incorporated in the artwork consist of religious motifs, memory painting, pop art, life experiences, mundane observations, the animal world, and even art for art’s sake, to name a few.
