what is singular art ?


Singular art pieces are generally created by self-taught artists. They are crafted using unexpected materials and are devoid of any artistic influences or traditions. This raw approach to creation reveals unique modes of representation and figuration. The French artist Jean Dubuffet is the originator of the concept of Art Brut or singular art. He started in the 1940s to assemble a collection of objects made by psychiatric hospital inmates.

These creative examples outside of the standard art world codes paved the way for a marginal artistic approach. The works are the results of free experiences, far removed from any constraints imposed by society or tradition. He spoke of an "entirely pure, raw artistic operation, reinvented in all its phases by its author, based solely on his own impulses". Since its emergence in the early 1970s, singular art has transformed from a marginal movement into a popular one.

 

A unique genre beyond contemporary art codes


Singular sculptures, from this distinctive genre, are characterized by an avant-garde spirit. These works do not conform to any particular style or previous movement. This genre should not be confused with naive art. "Naive" artists draw inspiration from known and recognized movements, whereas artists of the singular movement prefer to break traditional codes and move away from artistic trends. The works are raw and emotionally potent. For Jean Dubuffet, they embody a true transgression against artistic and pictorial codes and the history of art in general.

Singular art is an integral part of the contemporary artistic landscape, holding a paramount and unique place within it. Works from this movement are unique, singular, and distinct to each artist. They are selected in part because they do not align in any way with any classification or identification. These sculptures cannot be boxed into a dictionary category or submit to a general, common definition.
This movement appeared at the end of the second world war and continues to have bright days ahead. Its origin also ensures its longevity. While in the mid-40s, this art was misunderstood, today it has emerged at the forefront of the artistic scene in galleries worldwide.
