Description
The End is Near! maps the millennial fervor that haunts our consciousness as the impending hour draws near, and gathers the most provocative collection of visionary and outsider art ever assembled. Combining full-color reproductions by almost sixty contemporary visionary artists with commentary by such noted thinkers as Stephen Jay Gould, the Dalai Lama, visionary art expert Roger Manley, and Apocalypse Culture editor Adam Parfrey -- this book catalogs the work of artists who dwell on the shadowy fringes of society: the recluses, the disenfranchised, the mentally ill, the wildly eccentric. The ever growing popularity of visionary and outsider art, particularly among the young and alternative culture, makes the timing of this book even more prescient, and many of the best-known visionary artists are represented here: Joe Coleman, Howard Finster; Eugene Von Bruenchenhein, Paul Laffoley, and many more. This book is an accessible, fascinating look at the sometimes shocking, a always inspired imagery of our charged times.
