Which is why intention—that key notion that sends outsider-art lovers running for the aisles—matters so much with a largely self-invented artist like Foulkes. His showmanship and criticality may not inure him from being grist for the great corporate cultural mill, but it makes any thinking person who experiences his eye-goggling, brain-jarring attractions know perfectly well which side this artist is on.

Other than the fact that I disagree with this reviewer's general take on so-called "Outsider Art," a close examination of Bill Traylor's (himself a former slave) art, reveals extreme relevance to today's current events and important issues of the day, especially with respect to a certain trial that's been #1 in the news for literally the past month.
