Artist


The definition of an artist is wide-ranging and covers a broad spectrum of activities to do with creating art, practicing the art and/or demonstrating an art.  The work of self-taught artists continues to elude firm categorization.  Loosely characterized as artists without formal aritistic training, self-taught artists have not yet been the subjects of an expansive overview and balanced assessment. In the works of many famous self-taught artists, Biblical themes and imagery abound. Many self-taught artists copy works by famous painters in order to learn the craft of painting; however, most self-taught artist are not afraid to experiment.


Self Taught Art

... has been an important adjunct to the contemporary art scene for roughly one hundred years. Yet, though the field (as distinct from the art itself) originated in Europe, its American component has frequently been viewed in isolation. The term "Outsider art" was initially intended to be the English-language equivalent of European Art Brut, but American Outsider art — with its quirky mix of folk objects, environments, amateur paintings, works by the mentally ill, ethnic expressions and religious proselytizing — at times differs markedly from Art Brut. Indeed, surprisingly few American collectors of the native product have much awareness of the genre’s European antecedents....

The field of self-taught art was constructed in early twentieth-century Europe as an alternative to a civilization perceived to be in irreversible decline. However, unlike the other kindred modernist movements, such as Fauvism, Cubism and Expressionism that arose around the same time, self-taught art allowed for practically no input from the creators themselves. In fact, the creators were elected by virtue of their distance from the self-conscious art world, which projected onto those creators’ ideals that often could not be met. The myth of absolute originality was shaken every time it was revealed that a self-taught artist had been influenced by an outside source. The myth of purity crumbled almost as soon as an artist was discovered and taken into the evil commercial marketplace. Convinced that the hypothetical tree falling in an empty forest does make a noise, the art world set out on an impossible mission to record the sound.
