Outsider Artist Jesse Aarron Sculpture of Spirit in the Tree



Jesse Aaron (1887-1979) is a highly regarded Southern Black outsider artist who received wide recognition from being included in the landmark exhibition Black Folk Art in America, 1930-1980. The exhibition and book of ten black folk artists at the Corcoran Gallery of Art revealed his work as a sculptor and his unusual life story. His work with found tree materials that he would bring to life was inspired by a dream where he was instructed to make art after the death of his wife at an old age. This piece of hollowed tree section, probably cedar, has a pair of eyes visible inside made of cast resin.
