I have been really digging David “Big Dutch” Nally’s artwork over the past few days since I discovered him while browsing firstdibs.com. He is represented by the Outsider Folk Art Gallery , which I recommend checking out because there is a lot of great work there. Although as an aside I do feel like I need to mention that I personally have reservations about the term “outsider” because it’s essentially subjective. I also believe it is becoming more and more irrelevant for many reasons (i.e the existence of the internet, the fact that established institutions are losing influence as people learn they don’t need them to make or see good art, “educated” people still make art that looks similar to this so what does it matter anyway blah blah) and although I think this is something really interesting I don’t want this post to get derailed because the point was just to share art that I love, so without further distraction please feast your pupil holes upon the artistic delights I have digitally posted for you my dear precious readers
