Henry Darger

Have you ever seen any of Henry Darger's work? Are you intrigued by this work as I am? Where it comes from? who this Darger guy is? If so, don't miss "In the realms of the unreal" a documentary of Darger's life and work.

I was so pleased to be able to see this documentary on netflix this summer! Here is a trailer:

  1. I love Darger's paintings. The colors and compositions are frequently stunning, the bonkers subject matter is fascinating, the repetitive traced patterns are like a foreshadowing of sample/remix culture... it's a shame he's inseparable in people's minds from the phenomenon of outsider art. He was utterly unique and shouldn't be shoehorned into a movement where the pissing and arguing overshadows the work.
