We are thrilled to present our Art Brut Painting collection, offering a fascinating glimpse into the organic creativity of this genre.
The Spontaneous Spirit of Art Brut
Art Brut, meaning "raw art" in French, refers to art created outside the boundaries of official culture. The term was coined in the 1940s by French artist Jean Dubuffet, who was fascinated by art produced by asylum inmates, mediums, and eccentrics. Dubuffet celebrated the pure, unfiltered creative spirit embodied in these untutored talents.
Art Brut defies tradition and conventions. Works are spontaneously crafted without classical training or concern for aesthetics. Figures may be exaggerated or anatomy altered. Perspective and proportion give way to imaginative expression. The results are idiosyncratic, sometimes disturbing, yet always authentic.
Visions Unbound at Cohle Gallery
Our Art Brut Painting collection captures the primal creative energy of this style. We are delighted to represent talents like Atelier ATE, whose collaborative four-handed paintings exude expressive Art Brut aesthetics. Benjamin Cabral's meditative digital explorations also carry the authentic spirit of the genre.
The collection ranges from understated monochromes to explosions of clashing color. Compositions may seem haphazard or intentionally provocative. Figurative elements intertwine with abstraction in surreal narratives. Together these works provide a compelling showcase of the Art Brut ethos: artwork produced through pure creative intuition, unhindered by convention.
