Reading Part:

Outsider Art

Outsider Art is a term used to describe art that is made by people who choose to live and work outside society. The artists produce this kind of art-Outsider Artists-work in isolation from other artists and have little or no formal artistic training. Because they do not learn conventional artistic techniques from teachers or other artists, Outsider Artists must invent their own ways of doing things. As a result of the unconventional methods that Outsider Artists often use, their work can look strange and not at all like traditional art to the observer.

Listening Part:

Now listen to part of a lecture in an Art History class.

(professor) All right, so let’s consider the works of outsider artist Henry Dodger. Dodger lived by himself in a tiny apartment in Chicago in the 1900s. He had no friends and spent all his spare time their alone creating hundreds of paintings and drawings. He had never formally studied art and kept his work completely private, so no one ever saw it or responded to it during his life time.

And so, when you see Dodger ’s work you notice how unique it is. It doesn't remind you of anything you've ever seen before. It’s very much his own. For example, one piece, it’s a water-color painting; in this piece he illustrates a story, about the adventure of seven children. But see, Dodger had a really hard time drawing human figures. Yet he managed to come up with his own rather unique solution for the problem. He simply cut out pictures of children from newspapers and magazines and pasted them into his own painted illustrations of trees, flowers and grass.

The results look, um, a little strange. Dodger ’s picture looks more cluttered , more crowded with details than the pictures of other artists, because its entire surface is painted and there are no spaces left empty. It’s also a lot longer than pictures of most other artists, about nine feet long.

Question:

Explain why Henry Dodger is considered an Outsider Artist.
