Folk Art? Outsider Art? Self-Taught Art? Art Brut? Some small gems from the John Perry Collection
John Perry writes:

I have collected this type of art for over fifty years. In the beginning, it was called Folk Art but in the 21st-Century, it has many names….

“As ‘Beauty’ is in the eye of the beholder” we are making judgments about visual information all the time. It is my humble opinion that although these might not be great art I believe it is good art because it has been made with heart and soul, two key ingredients of any creative practice. Like it or not I hope the collective experience offered enriches your life by these humble works of art even if for just a moment. These works make me feel like the richest man in the world."

Feeling like the richest man in the world as John Perry exhibits works created with heart and soul at Art Centre Helensville 6-27 May.
