Laurie Marshall

Laurie Marshall is a person marginalized by mental illness, his diagnosis being chronic depression. He sits down and draws and paints what comes into his mind: people, animals, streets, and rural landscapes. His inner world teems with fanciful animals with human faces and gentle expressions, botanical marvels, and a population of round, dreamy-eyed inner-city inhabitants. Completely self-taught and uninterested in contemporary art theory, Marshall is what is known as an outsider artist, an art-world term for someone working outside the boundaries of mainstream culture. He has been in two solo shows at the Marion Scott Gallery, various exhibits at Gallery Gachet, and was featured in the internationally acclaimed Museum of Everything Exhibit #4 in London, UK.
