|Alchemy symbols The hand of The Red Pilgrim|
maybe a deep feeling, an inner urge, an obsession, and of course my bloodline, from sufi healers over generations.
The feelings come up, an emotional connection, art shows changes, miraculously, so say those who have added my healing art, trusting the Universe, feeling the connection, and without asking any thing they chose my art, Thanks a lot!With recent sale through an Awesum Art gallery Saatchiart.com I feel, my art is finding its place and no longer totally an outsider art.
Common people do yet view my art with strange quirkiness and it is really difficult to explain the why and the how I make my art. Then the explanations...yet to meet the right art lovers , people who really understand my art. Google and you tube helps to connect with art lovers and art buyers.
Meaning of Outsider art- can be any art genre, or theme or subjects that are not so much universally acceptable to common masses. While every artist is always ahead of their times, people have never accepted art at that particular time and it is always after years that the artist and the art are valued and given meaning and explanations, and paintings given a deep understanding.
Struggles of Outsider art- I think artists choose subjects and themes, but my compulsion with symbols has gone way too far with writing symbols on every bits and pieces of papers. Common People are not educated in the field of understanding and accepting new subjects other than landscapes and flower art. Not fast selling yet we give our lives for ways to bring about miraculous changes with art and symbols. feng shui , reiki, read a lot of books, did a lot of healing for free and meditations every day for free healing requests, wrote Reiki letters, made wish fulfillment art with specific symbols, and I have to thank each reader of my blog for the over whelming emails that I get, I try to answer every query sincerely with the best of my feng shui and Reiki intuitive knowledge and the happy emails keep me going.
Yet the mind is bombarded with so many ideas for making art, there is always a craving for more art materials. No, I do not accept free donations even on so many request after consultations as advice given is free!
Outsider art is not accepted soon and laypeople also find it difficult to connect at a glance. it takes time, it takes years to connect, but once the symbols connect they give Awesum love!
Since the era of the internet has arrived art is also not left behind. There are many art sites that display artworks online and sell artworks. the vast universe of the internet and art has made opportunities and global acceptance for any genre of art, The Outsider art..
Many artists are now aware of the internet and are willing to display their works online. This has become very easy as the images are uploaded and the viewer gets to see the artworks without physically going to the art gallery or the art store. There are many well known art galleries that are now going online. The reason for this is they get global exposure. This is very essential for any market that they get a wide range of viewers and buyers. The internet is the easiest way to get global business and global exposure, and even for The Outsider Art.
The art collectors and art buyers gets a wide variety of paintings to choose from and since they are already sorted out according to the theme and price range it becomes very easy to select an artwork according to our budget.
The only consideration coming up here is the transport and shipping cost required to send the home delivery to the customer. Sometimes the art galleries also add commissions for maintaining their websites. Many artists have their own websites and once the public gets to know these sites the sales of paintings becomes very easy. Each artist have their own clientele that like their works and style of paintings and the internet helps them to be updated with the latest works of that artist.Artists also blog about their art, their art techniques and their art processes. The Outsider Art too has its own fans!
While on this spiritual journey of The red Pilgrim...As I continue to make healing art..
