OutsiderArt.info is dedicated to my lifelong friend and only partner, without whose love I would surely fall out of time.
OutsiderArt.info and the International
Outsider Exhibition of Modern Art (IOEMA) Collection celebrates works from
around the world. We try to expose the greatest array of art to the greatest array
of people. I think of the site as an electronic 14 Rue Clauzel and
sometimes, when late and dark, I hear Pere Tanguy laughing! The key to
everything we do lies in the great artwork created by artists we are so
honored to exhibit; without them, we would wander a vacant earth, an empty
fist threatening the moon.
Some of the artists are physically, emotionally or
mentally challenged, some are not and some tear cellophane into little slivers of
light. Our artists are self taught, schooled, some with MFA's and a few inspired; a half a dozen or so
are true visionary and some stand fiercely in battle to fight with evil
with color. They stick together what comes their way. Some
paint what they see and hear and feel. Others paint what they want us to
see of what they think they see. Some are mad.
