Adolf Wolfli – German ‘outsider’ artist active around 1900-1930. Visionary musical scores and swirling patterns, reminds me of Hildegard von Bingen drawings.

Madge Gill – British ‘outsider’ artist, particularly for her large scale calico drawings and embroideries. She made art under the direction of a spirit guide she called, ‘Myrninnerest’

I am beginning a large scale ink drawing on fabric.

Application fees? Artist pays

Part of the labour of being an artist is applying for grants and residencies. Fair enough, I would rather be making art rather than making reams of bureaucratic writing, but I accept it is part of what I do. However  I am becoming increasingly sick of being asked to pay quite large sums of money as application fees. I understand that administration costs art centres money – but 40 – 65 euros just to apply for an open call? If 1000 people apply that is  a lot of money. Perhaps there should be a world wide cap of around £$Eu 20?
