From my own experience I believe there are many potentially
gifted artists in our Australian community who are fighting feelings
of ‘aloneness’ stemming from discouragement in early
life or ridicule of their artistic efforts, and who feel that neither
they nor their work are valued or validated by society at large.
These artists lack any special advocacy group to speak up for them
and while we ignore the rich contribution they can make our society
will remain the poorer.
Perhaps ‘outsider’ art is an entirely new concept to
you, perhaps you are an artist who has already sensed some lack
of affinity with the mainstream, or maybe you don’t consider
yourself an ‘artist’ at all.
Whatever your background, I hope you enjoy your visit and that
you will take a few moments to get in touch and let me have your comments.
