Garden of Isis Starclock


category : Arts
Garden of Isis Starclock "Grassroots art" is a term describing art made by
people with no formal artistic training . . . (usually of retirement age)using ordinary materials
in an extraordinary way . . .
and frequently creating a whole artistic environment around themselves, effectively making themselves part of the artwork.
Such work tends to be difficult to classify because it falls outside the sphere of fine art as well as that of traditional folk art in which skills and patterns may be passed from one generation to another.
The picture depicts the work of Mri Pliar's use of creating art from old computer parts.
