Trains, saints & cowboys: Schizophrenic artist Martin Ramirez’s drawings from the mental hospital

Trains, saints & cowboys: Schizophrenic artist Martin Ramirez’s drawings from the mental hospital | Archivance - Miscellanées | Scoop.it
“Untitled (Horse and Rider)” (c. 1950)
 
Martín Ramírez is best known as the schizophrenic outsider artist who drew his masterpieces from a mental hospital. The diagnosis certainly adds a bit of sensation to his legacy, but make no mistake; he’s one of 20th century’s self-taught masters. The dude even has that ultimate accolade a USPS stamp series! Ramírez’s work is rustic, yet ornate, a kind of psychedelic folk art made with scraps and common materials—usually basic pencils and crayons on found paper. If you look closely, you can sometimes see the lines of notebook paper or the distinct shade of a paper bag. Early on, he pasted them together with potatoes and spit. His themes of trains, saints and cowboys evoke a spiritual wild frontier ordained with his trademark filigree patterns, reminiscent of rings on a tree stump.

Ramírez’s life was tragic. At the age of 23, knowing absolutely no English, he crossed the US border to find work and provide for his pregnant wife and their three children. After six years, he was homeless, and he was soon arrested and institutionalized with acute schizophrenia, nearly catatonic. Although Ramírez’s brilliant...

Kahsatstenhsera: Indigenous Resistance to Tar Sands Pipelines

Kahsatstenhsera: Indigenous Resistance to Tar Sands Pipelines | Archivance - Miscellanées | Scoop.it

The “Line 9″ and “Energy East” pipelines threaten to bring tar sands “crude” from Alberta for export through ports in the Atlantic. These pipelines will traverse through many Indigenous communities and natural areas, threatening not only the health of the land but the sovereignty of these territories and their peoples. We have teamed up with Indigenous organizer Amanda Lickers to produce a Kahsatstenhsera: Indigenous Resistance to Tar Sands Pipelines. This video will focuses on Indigenous resistance and seeks to build capacity in Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities by providing an educational and accessible resource to build awareness across communities. Featuring stories and perspectives from land defenders in Athabasca Chipewyan, Aamjiwnaang, Six Nations of the Grand River, Kanehsatà:ke, and Elsipogtog First Nations, this video will not only educates the public on the issues being faced by pipeline construction and expansion, but showcases Indigenous resistance and provide an anti-colonial lens for understanding environmental destruction.
