This one is a little grim. Adolf Wölfli was a deeply disturbed psychiatric patient in the Waldau Clinic in Bern Switzerland who took to drawing as a means of expression in the early years of the 19th century. Eventually Wölfli become a subject of fascination to the father of outsider art, Jean Dubuffet, and his thousands of artworks became synonymous with Art Brut.
We include his 1910 drawing "Mental Asylum Band-Copse" here because among many other idiosyncrasies, Wölfli exhibited "horror vacui", the obsessive desire to fill every empty space with detail—going so far as to poke two small holes in any paper not filled with pencil marks. Of course in exploration of removal and vacancy, a gaping void has been cut from the artwork. Wölfli would be horrified, but the visual result is undeniably compelling.
