The Museum of Everything

February 4, 2010

I’ve just been to The Museum of Everything and seen the best exhibition I’ve seen in a long time. I’ve have been a fan of Art Brut (a phrase coined by one of my favourite artists Jean Dubuffet), since 1986 when I started my studies at Worthing Art College, so this exhibition was a real treat and truely inspiring. It’s not on for much longer, I think it finishes on Feb 14th so get down there quick. For more information click the following link

Madge Gill was one of my favourites, Untitled 1945 shown below.

Birdie Lusch 1903-1988

I love the work of the self taught artist Birdie Lusch from Columbus, Ohio and here are a couple of my favourites. 

She spent most of her life working at the Timken Ball Bearing Factory but created these amazing collages for her own amusement.

Magazine cuttings, recycled envelopes and postage stamps were transformed into these quirky still life compositions all signed with an outline of a bird.
