Product Description:

With this exhibit, Dogbotz Boneyard Gallery celebrates two unique traditions: folk art and outsider art. But what do these artistic styles entail? How are they different from one another? Let’s see.

According to art historians and collectors, folk art encompasses art produced from an indigenous culture (such as the First Peoples of the Americas), by peasants, or by other tradespeople. In contrast to fine art, folk art is primarily utilitarian and decorative rather than purely aesthetic. Folk art is characterized by a naive style, in which traditional rules of proportion and perspective of are not usually employed. Folk art can include anything from a primitive wooden sculpture of a horse to a painting on a piece of scrap wood or metal.

Outsider art, by contrast, is art created by self-taught or naïve art makers. Typically, those labeled as “outsider artists” have little or no contact with the mainstream art world or art institutions. Outsider artists often have no formal training in painting, sculpture, or other formats and media. In many cases, the work of outsider artists is tragically discovered only after their deaths. Sometimes, outsider art illustrates extreme mental states, unconventional ideas, or elaborate fantasy worlds.

Though both folk artists and outsider artists may have no education in fine art, their artistic products are both fascinating and beautiful. And today, many of these pieces are highly collectible.
