Re: Folk Art

Folk art and outsider art are both interesting. Folk art has traditions, they're taught in those isolated cultures and subcultures where many of the stylized forms and traditions have stories behind them. Appreciating it without the stories as art is an interesting way to look at it, but it sometimes seems richer to me understanding its context.

I also love illustration, which can have many fine art qualities but sometimes gets looked down on by the fine art world.

Re: Folk Art

I'm a collector of both folk art and outsider art and I tend to be a little bit more attached to those pieces than the contemporary work in my collection.

What's missing is native American work, which has been hard to acquire and out of my price range (the stuff that I really want), namely ledger art. Those can go from $3500-$10,000.
