is fertile territory for self-taught artists, whose eccentricity
informs their imagery and challenges accepted notions about
the visual arts. Their art generally flies in the face of
tradition. It is not the point of these artists to be unconventional;
convention to them is simply beside the point: Perspective
is irrelevant and color is more a function of fun than theory.
These image-makers' unfettered expressions exist on the fringes
of art. They are interested in creating worlds in which they
want to live, examining the ones in which they have lived,
or exploring the ones in which they do live.
