ELOQUENT OBSESSIONS: Outsider & Visionary Art.
30th August - 19th October 2008
Orleans House Gallery
Twickenham TW1 3DJ,
Exhibiting some of the most remarkable outsider & visionary artists, Eloquent Obsessions
is a collaboration between Orleans House Gallery and the Henry Boxer Gallery.
Amongst the 25 internationally recognised artists on display, highlights will include a group
of extraordinary works by the enfant terrible of the outsider art world, Henry Darger
(1892-1973). Also showcased are artists from the Maria Gugging Psychiatric Clinic
in Austria, classic English outsiders Scottie Wilson and Madge Gill, and an important collection of schizophrenic watercolours by celebrated Edwardian cat artist Louis Wain, painted during his last years at Napsbury asylum in the 1930's.
Also included are a selection of rarely seen works by visionary artists Vonn Stropp, Charles Benefiel, Norbert Kox and Donald Pass. Contact the Henry Boxer Gallery for further details.

NOTE:The Norbert Kox visionary works from Bimini, Bahamas, are mostly esoteric paintings based on the transference of energy between the physical and spiritual realms.Bimini is a tiny island in the Bermuda Triangle and is known for a high concentration of spiritual energy and healing vortexes, attributed to it's location in the electromagnetic grid. Some believe Bimini is the tiny speck of land that remains of Atlantis. In 1933 Edgar Cayce predicted that evidence of Atlantis would be found in 1968 or 1969 in the waters of Bimini. An amazing discovery was made in 1968 when a plane flying over Bimini spotted an underwater structure that has become known as the Bimini Road or the Stones of Atlantis. This was a controversial issue until recently when underwater archeologists disclosed irrefutable evidence of perhaps the world's oldest seaport, in about 15 feet of water just off Bimini's north-west shoreline. The Bimini Road was in fact an ancient harbor of a long forgotten civilization.
A series of my Bimini paintings were exhibited in London for one month in the Scared Pastures exhibition: http://www.thehorsehospital.com/archives/000550.html http://www.thehorsehospital.com/archives/000557.html.
The following brief review of that show, from Raw Vision was sent to me by William Thomas Thompson, Wednesday, August 13, 2008.
Sacred Pastures-The Horse Hospital, London, June 7-28, 2008:
"The dark interior of the Horse Hospital once more provided an atmospheric setting for an exhibition of work by artists of unusual individuality. The leading figure in the exhibition, Wisconsin visionary Norbert Kox, was on hand to talk about the religious beliefs and explain how they give meaning to his imagery. Kox's particular brand of apocalyptic vision was well represented by both painting and print, including an example from his series of the portrait of Christ as anti Christ.* Cathy Ward's intricate and obsessive craper board drawings were powerful and enovative. Some were rambling and free. Others more formal with centrally based composition, their overall effect enhanced by carved wooden frames. Animated video versions of her drawings added movement and complexity to her imagery. Eric Wright's paintings seem to fall in between the other artists in the show, with landscapes peopled with quasi-Biblical scenes, coupled with quotations formed on celestial banners." (John maizels; Raw Vision issue of August 2008, page 65).
*Note: "Portrait of Christ as anti Christ" is a reference to the Warner Sallman "Head of Christ" that I have exposed as a plagiarized fraud in my "Picture Perfect Jesus" series: http://www.americaohyes.com/pages/march2004.htm. A feature article by Professor David Damkoehler on this subject is slated for the December issue of Raw Vision. Don't miss it! (The main body of the Picture Perfect Jesus exhibition was also created on the Island of Bimini).
Thank you for your kind interest.
Best regards,Norbert H. Kox
