Kollet Hardeman is one of the most sought-after emerging contemporary painters
working today. Working with her hands latex and ink, the painter's street art style, both naïve and emotional; recalls the Art Brut Movement, along with Kollet's loves~ Pollock, Hambleton and Basquiat. The artist paints with explosive energy and abandon, approaching every canvas with sense of urgency and physicality as if something vital inside of the artist is craving expression without fear or restraint. The result is raw, original, gestural, and simplistic in nature... she leaves her fingerprints, literally, on each piece.
Art Brut and Outsider Artists are visionaries that are often introverted, isolated, and exceptionally imaginative individuals.
Outsider art is art made by self-taught or supposedly naïve artists with typically little or no contact with the conventions of the art worlds. In many cases, their work is discovered only after their deaths. Often, outsider art illustrates extreme mental states, unconventional ideas, or elaborate fantasy worlds.
