Henry Darger show extended in New York


Ricco Maresca Gallery in New York has extended its ‘Henry Darger: Landscapes’ exhibition until February 2nd 2013. If you are heading over to the Outsider Art Fair make sure you make time to get to this exhibition.

This exhibition brings together highly celebrated landscapes by the self-taught artist Henry Darger (1892-1973). Darger’s sumptuous and detailed landscapes are extensively varied – from bucolic and peaceful to dark and foreboding. When Henry Darger’s work is viewed from this singular vantage, new aesthetic, conceptual, and technical discoveries surface from the vast depths of the artist’s complex and mysterious oeuvre.
