    by Laurie Ahner

    After dropping out of school at the age of 11, Roy Reid (Jamaica, 1937-2009) remained illiterate until his thirties. Spiritual by nature, he then taught himself to read by using the Bible. Today he is regarded as one of the most important outsider artists in his native Jamaica. His use of strong colors often carries symbolic meanings.

  5. Recent Acquisition: Jonathan Demme Collection

    My dear friend Jonathan Demme (1944-2017), a notable American film director (Philadelphia, The Silence of the Lambs, and many more) passed away on April 26th. He was an avid art collector, and a great supporter of Folk & Outsider Art and Artists. Every year, he visited us at the Outsider Art Fair in New York bringing with him much enthusiasm. His vast art collection is beyond spectacular, and it is truly a reflection of his joyful yet modest personality. Though he is incredibly missed by so many fans and friends like myself, his passion for Haitian and Folk Art, and his heart and soul, will endure. His eye was for true quality and intense color, and I am honored to own many works from his collection!

    Cruz Enrique España lives and works in Antigua, Guatemala. He carefully studies different kinds of bird in the region to understand their behaviors and characters. Each piece is original – hand sculpted from quality refined clay, wired, air, then kiln dried, and hand painted over several days.
