Extraordinary Spaces

November 15, 2013

Scholar Jo Farb Hernández has spent the last fourteen years researching and documenting art environments in Spain. The artists who produce these environments are self-taught and their works range from complex cathedrals and houses to garden sculptures and statues. Hernández’s work was recently published by Raw Vision in the book Singular Spaces: From the Eccentric to the Extraordinary in Spanish Art Environments.

Singular Spaces thoroughly documents the lives and work of forty-five Spanish artists. Produced by Marquand Books, this 584-page book features more than 1,300 full-color illustrations as well as a DVD supplement. Essays by Hernández illuminate the idiosyncratic nature of the works. Her book has received praise throughout the outsider art world and Singular Spaces was recently reviewed by Design Observer.
