outsider art • art brut • the unclassifiable • the avant-avant-garde
WELCOME TO brutjournal!
SO EXACTLY WHAT ARE WE UP TO HERE?
WELL WE’RE INTERESTED IN FORMS OF ART AND CULTURAL EXPRESSION THAT BREAK THE MOLD; THAT ARE FRESH, DIFFERENT, EXPERIMENTAL, DARING, AND DEFY FAMILIAR LABELS; AND THAT, FOR ALL THEIR INNOVATION OR FAR-OUT FORM, UNABASHEDLY CELEBRATE AND REAFFIRM THE HUMAN SPIRIT.
KIND OF RED
IN-BETWEEN COLORS IN BIG RED’S SHADOW
They’re murky and hard to pin down. They display hints or strains of red but they lack the full-blooded punch and gravitas of that giant among colors. Instead, they whisper or hang around with a certain sense of languor and world weariness, dreaming of the day when they’ll be able to get their red on.
