Stunning Perceptions and Somber Reflections
Art is the ultimate truth, the last bastion of raw expression. Artist Truud de Kroon said “What do I paint? I paint my diary. Apparently, I cannot do otherwise.” Marc Susan’s OUTRÉ 1.0; The Bodacious Creative Collection is a venture into the world of artistic truth, one that makes love to the senses through the stroke of a brush, the click of shutter, and the lyricism of language. Filled with the works of artists such as Truud de Kroon (quoted above), Holly Wood, Francien Krieg, Didier Cremieux, Monia Kasprzak, and writers like Doug Anderson, Scott Williams, Kenneth LeFave, and Fred Rinne to name but a few, this book invites one and all to take a walk between the pages and become lost in the joy and the sorrow, the celebration and the humor of human artistic expression.
From visions of royalty to goddesses, conductors to concentration camps, from expressionism to eroticism, and social injustices, OUTRÉ 1.0 is ‘music’ to the eyes, a punch to the imagination, and food for the soul. It is a treasure trove of inspiration. Art is humanity, and OUTRÉ 1.0 is the reflection of that humanity in all its wealth, grit, and beauty. Are you ready for the truth?
