“Each outsider artist is different; they are basically something of their own creation. There isn’t usually that much of a continuity among them. Except that what they are creating is from the inner-self, a result of an inner dialog, an inner vision, an inner quest that has a rhythm within that particular artist or in many cases a way to express outside of the inner self frustrations, problems, fantasies, thoughts, almost anything.  They will normally, but not necessarily as in the case of Jean Dubuffet, not have any training. From a higher way of looking at it, it is instinctual in many cases. Or we call it as visions that are shared among all of earth’s inhabitants.”
