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.

It's been a while since I last visited your web site. Some of the snotty comments in here are actually hilarious! ;)
I'm guessing these (he)artless individuals are drawn to your raw talent, directness and acerbic cynicism like a moth to a flame; they just hate to admit it.

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.

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.

Your artwork is, by far, the worse I have ever seen. The shit that comes for my ass is worth more then this worthless piece of SHIT. Really now. 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?

Hello,my name is Jan I had an opportunity to see your works and i have to say it's realy fantastick!I Enjoy your sites very much.I wish you a good luck. www.
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

Good site! Paola www.trevisanarte.com
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: mischiefangel.blogspot.com and almapathadventures.blogspot.com)The best to you. Do not let anyone tamper with your “soul stamina”.

Hello, I was introduced (on line) to your work about a year ago or so...it is nice to see a more playful-light side of you coming through... "Integraton" and self-acceptance is hard work. Niiice!
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 cafepress.com/123art. Soon, my site will be completed hopefully by August 30, 2005. It's called www.hungonart.com 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!
Your work so great! All the best for you! Best regards. http://www.rustam.name/
loved your work and your dedication to the cause !!

Hey Kelly, fabulous stuff. very original and emotional. Keep it coming.

Hi there Kelly Moore! Lovely work!!! It reminds me of my healing art and writing journey. Only I am only a few years behind you. Best of luck in Ohio in September.
Kelly, it sounds like this Anne heifer is good advertising for you. Hope you're loving Sante Fe and playing pretty with the locals. :)
Alway love seeing a productive and successful artist. The rawness of your work is an inspiration. It masks the wide range of your technical ability in applying paint, which is also a joy to behold. Very emotive work.
Totally love the paintings!!! :-)
You are the genuine RAW artist. Pure genius. Stay pure to your vision.
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 ?...now 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
great work! best regards. kuba
Your art really sucks. I know because its obvious you don't have talent or a brain. And I might add your web site could have been designed by a 10 year old. I would recommend you go back to real estate or get a job at 7-11 where they are hiring all sorts of disabled folks.
Fantastic site very smooth and easy to use with fantastically things to see, Karl Downing
What a wonderful website many thanks
just stoppin' by to say hello! it's been awhile. you're a painting mad man! i actually agree with that guy a few posts ago about pos/neg balance. i'm sure kelly would agree, that his shit ain't for everyone! hahaha!!!... okay, that really wasn't that funny, at all. ;p so uh, yeah, here i am and here's my text. oh, yeah, i got one of those emails from that anne woman too! too busy to join such a group. i thought about it for a second and then it went away. she was calling you bad words and it made me wonder... why? why is kelly such a bad artist man? why? oh
My website is www.rongiii.com Have had more than 25 incaserations since 1978. Now i am away from crashs for 5 yrs after spending 2 yrs in British Columbia.Your work looks non contemporary which is coming through slowly as the big god of Modernism crushes anyone different...........ron giii
Kvery expressive work ,nice! greetings http://patrickvanschaijk.exto.nl

Kelly - your work is mesmerizing. It's childlike yet complex. I looked at them all and kept thinking that I wish they weren't sold. Keep up the good work. You won me over as a fan.
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
love the work - very nice indeed.
HI Kelly . Your works are very good. So i add your link to my web page (www.onston.8m.com) bye...
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
The main thing that comes to mind is...."wow"
the people who run to "defend" this guys art or add positive comments after someone leaves an honest "negetive" comment are delusional......stop making statements about other negetive comments....its an opinion....and that is ALL art is ....an opinion...if someone thinks this guy sucks...guess what? he sucks! if you think he is fvckin' Picasso....guess what? he's freakin' Picasso! positive and negetive can live together......it's called balance...seems to me this dude who paints these pictures has an idea of the concept....why can't his "minions" of
Hi Kelly, Great work. Keep doing your thing. Lori has been criticised by artist who paint by the numbers with projectors. However the spiritualist keep contacting her pointing out the spirits in her paintings. Check out Lori's work at http://www.lorigeiger.com
Kelly, an artist named Anne Marie Grgich is spamming your guestbook. She contacted me saying she got my email address from the guest book and said some nasty things about you and then asked me to join her Raw Vision group. She must like your art though....it sounds like she spends alot of time on your site!
Kelly. You are an inspiration. Please don't listen (as if you would !) to the critics. Just keep on doinge your think. I get my strength at soloartwork.com from the way you respond to the critics with even more super pieces. keep them coming......
highly vibrant and impulsive work well done! check out www.shurmanart.com
The Outsider Art or the unfamiliar name of Exile. The nameless colours remain and kill!
Would you please do a Clay Aiken nude? I'd trade ya my SpongeBob lunchbox for it. :)
Geat site ! i'll be back !
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
Isn't something good if we enjoy looking at it? Well I am no expert but I like looking at your work so that means it is good. So there!!
I think your art is HORSESHIT!!! No, wait - that's an insult to my horse L.J. If what you make is art, then L.J. just made a f---ing MASTERPIECE!!! Whoo hoo! :-P
I like your style. No holds barred. Really "out there" Fun to look at. Colorful. Thought provoking, and, isn't that what art should do?
art is only thing that cure ourself. good!
Hi Kelly,I like your free brushwork and the use of colour...Keep going ; )
Hi, I am Tourism student who likes surfing and travelling around the world. I visit alots of places in Peru, so i can tell you the food is great we have great beaches north of lima, like mancora, chicama,pacasmayo with great waves chicama has for me the longest wave in the world, 43 kilometers south of lima you can find pico alto with waves from 8 to 10 meters.
The good news is: In my expert opinion I like your view of art. The bad news is I'm a life model..
If you can become famous doing paintings this bad I think Im going to start painting. These people on your guestbook are about as talented as you are. I think you paint like Britney Spears. Maybe not that good. You definitely are not Picasso.
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
ho visto i tuoi nuovi quadri,complimenti per l'originalità. un saluto marco
Follow your dreams....you can achieve your goals....I am living proof....BEEFCAKE!
