Vision of the Other Worlds takes its name from a work by The Reverend Howard Finster, an outsider artist who dedicated his life to artistic interpretations of the visions he received from God. Though Finister’s visions were literal ones, all artists are turned both inwards and out in their creative process, looking both to external and internal sources to create work. This channeling of outside spirits and forces viewed through a personal lens allows the artist to inhabit several worlds at once: the physical world, the unseen world and the psychological world. By straddling these disparate places a new landscape emerges and the vision of the other worlds is opened to us not by a god, but by the hands of a human: the artist.
