Kelly I met you on the Tesuque Indian reservation market last summer and continue to follow your work. I was at an "outsider art gallery" last week here in LA and was intrigued with why these "experts" in that field continue to show the same old schock while some of the best talent actually does work on the fringes of our culture unnoticed.

A terrible problem to have.  I like the Blue Woman, is she still available?  My sister's birthday is the same day as yours as well as our Scotch Irish lineage.  I would be honored to display a piece of your art in my home.  Look forward to hearing from you.  Best Regards, Patrice was submitted by  Patrice on Tuesday, June 5, 2007 at 12:16:16

Dear Kelly Moore, as a reader of the outsider art magazine Raw Vision I would like to tell you I think you should be in touch with their magazine as your work as an outsider artist seems far more interesting than most I read and see in the magazine.  Just my opinion of course but your work has that certain something missing in alot of outsider art that takes it from novelty to truly compelling stuff.  was submitted by George V, New York City, on Saturday, October 14, 2006 at 13:56:22

I find that when I come along really good artwork, my words falter. I gape; child-like in wonder, at a creation before me that evokes emotion beyond words. It may sound trite or cliché, but it's true. Good art requires no words to supplement its existence. To summarize or critique good art, well... one might as well stand on tip-toe and try to pluck the clouds from the sky. So with the few words I’ve spent here I will encourage others to come back to this place, and look, and keep looking. And Kelly, I encourage you exuberantly, to keep creating...

your work has a childlike playful quality that seems as if it is created in a stream-of-consciousness.  Some of it reminds me of more simplified Basquiat, and yes, raw.  You are a true soul who doesn't paint things to match somebody's couch.  I believe you do it cuz you have to.  i am so picky about what i like and your work
is some of the only work that i actually want to posess.  you inspire me.

Haven't you fucked up abstract artists realize there is nothing one bit special about this hunk of smelly shit ...? How dare you call yourself an artist?

hi kelly.  i am not going to dis your art or anything like that.  but what i'd really love to see on your site is a little comparison between what you CAN do and what you CHOOSE to do, know what i mean?  i mean, we all know that picasso's style evolved as he became more and more well-known and respected, we know that he became more instinctive and basically just decided to do his own thing because everything he did looked great anyway and it was already established by his earliest work that he was a genius, incredibly skilled and imaginative and original.  he was able to draw realistically and very capable of creating paintings with classical compositions and detailed realism etc.  so, clearly you can paint in an abstract kind of seemingly senseless and formless way, but do you have the ability to actually draw and do something beyond what everyone else can do, which is express yourself creatively?  because if not, it's very unsettling that you have managed to make!   a good living at this while so many skilled painters are struggling to.  what's up with that?  is that like the young cute pop star who has no knowledge of music becoming filthy rich and famous while the man who can play ten different instruments and write his own music can't get a record deal to save his life?  hmmmmm............... was submitted by  ( Natalie) on Tuesday, November 1, 2005 at 22:54:08

Wow, Kelly – double take! I am glad I gave you “my instinctive” impression on the works posted on your home page and, did not have a chance to read the guest book. I truly wonder "if or/and how" my opinion would have been influenced!? It appears you have managed to create some kind of a raucous controversy... Which is what is causing me to get back to you.Most people are terrified of their dark side. We all have one. Everything has one. Where there is light, there is shadow… Etc., etc., etc..Personally, mine was really “unpleasant” for myself to live with. So, I have decided a long time ago, to focus and develop the “light” side of me, which still did not manage to avoid controversy and criticism. Living creatively - outside the box does that to one, no matter what!I felt a need to share with you this passage from the Man of la Mancha himself…(as I have recalled it many times since my teens) don Quixote: Are the dogs barking Sancho? Then, we are moving!(Perhaps you could find some time to visit my sites: and best to you. Do not let anyone tamper with your “soul stamina”.

I love your work. I went to art school, The School of the Art Institute at Chicago. For awhile, I couldn't paint because I was robbed momentarily of my spontaniety and creativity. I now paint like I used to paint before art school. Thank goodness! My work is considered Outsider Art, which makes me proud. Went back to my roots! You can see my work at Soon, my site will be completed hopefully by August 30, 2005. It's called It's not up yet. How much are your pieces? People that insult your paintings have no concept of art in my opinion. You are creative and paint from the soul. This is a true artist!

Dude, the best think anyone can do is to stay away from the "art" crowd. To many times have i seen people start being influenced by "the group" and not just doing what they want or feel. A man can be an island...and it ain't so bad. Sounds like this "Anne" is all pent up. I bet if you two ever got together, it would be like one of those classic movies where you wind up in the sack and in love. just my 2 cents

top Secret agent Maxwell Smart reporting from the Raw Vision outsider art discussion group that artist Anne Grgich kicked you out of (is she still spamming your guestbook? She seems to spend more time at your site than the Raw Vision thing. Me wonders...does she make art or just run the forum and the the brownnosers ? the rumor circulating in the group of spys is that she emailed you an apology, invited you to join the group again and compared you to Matt Lamb and Joe Coleman. Are you going to post that email she sent you? The irony of you being kicked out of that outsider artist group is so think I can cut it with
knife. Just my 2 cents...but staying outside this mainstream outsider art industry is probably a good thing for you. Regards, from the spy reporting from raw for sending the monthly Art Newsletter to me.

Amazinig how your most aggresive critics seem to be the type of folks who think the kind of art that furnishes many a Best Western suite is the only "real" art. I was once lucky enough to see an exhibition of Adolf Hitler's art collection in Weimar, Germany. Herr Fuerher clearly shared the same love of "real" art. He also fancied himself a champion of truth; will parallels never cease? To be fair, i am making virtually groundless assumptions about these people's aesthetic penchants. Some of them seem to like Picasso alot, i imagine relligious art, too (somehow i'm missing the whole "evil" thing in your work, infact, i think your piece
entitled,"Evil," isn't nearly evil enough). Anyway, your work is good. The COBRA/ Yorn comparison was pretty dead on (not in a regurgitative way). I imagine your approach is similar. It's also nice to be assured that not every painter in Santa Fe is churning out that Southwest Neo-Impressionist junk, or better/worse, some Minimalist or Abstract- expresionist rehash. And, your guestbook realy is the Jerry Springer show of artist's website guestbooks: intoxicating and addictive, disturbing and hilarious (in a creepy guilt inducing way). ps. A tip to all fierce critics: when you say someone is " no Picaso," it makes me laugh... out-loud, everytime i see it written. it really is funny. It's so absurd!

Hi Kelly...I read the post about Anne Grgich spamming your guestbook with hysterical laughter. Im in that Raw Vision group that she kicked you out of a few years ago. And I remember that whole sheebang well. So, its pretty ironic that she snoops around your site pulling email addys off your guestbook...Raw Vision and Anne Grgich are so bought and sold they dont really know a thing about what a true "outsider" really is....Im not saying you are either but I know one thing for damn sure, you arent represented by any fancy pants gallerys, and your not some important magazines pet artist and you dont charge a gillion dollars for your art
because its "important." In other words, you arent the corporate sell out slut that I smell in that huge clique called Raw Vision groups led by Anne and her brown nosers. Keep up the good work and I think you should add her name to your Email list. One more thing about that Raw Vision Group thing....She keeps saying something about the Archives at that group to get the story of her kicking your
renegade ass out. What people dont know is she personally choses what posts go in that archive and she also uses her magic pencil to edit them to her historically important needs. As the self appointed spy of the group, I will keep you updated on what happens in that group as they will inevitably discuss you as you are actually an "outsider" How could you be an outsider and even belong to that group? She has actually even been to art school from what I've read.

Ever since we exchanged links I have become fascinated with outsider art. I think I am liking it much better than art school graduate art. Your art includes your feelings and emotions. Art school graduate art is so perfected and studied looking and is boring in my opinion. I have decided to give abstract outsider art a try and I am really enjoying it. And if people don't like outsider art then they can just go look at the bowls of fruit that the art school graduates are painting. Don't ever
stop doing what your doing because of other people insulting you. They are just
jealous and wish they could do it too.

I'm rather surprised at the ire your work has invoked in a few people. My guess is that they have their pretty MFA's from art school and were brain washed by academia to think that art "movements" are what art is about. I do see the resemblance to Karel Appel and Basquiat. So what. Show me any artist's work and I'll show you another artist whose work it resembles. There is no such thing as progress in art, and originality is an illusion created by the viewer's ignorance. But originality isn't the point. Your work is terribly powerful. I had a "holy shit" moment when I saw it. That's the point, damnit. Outsider my ass--you're right on
