Blackstock's Collections

From the Princeton Architectural Press description of Blackstock's Collections: The Drawings of An Artistic Savant, by Gregory L. Blackstock: "Gregory L. Blackstock, a retired Seattle pot washer, draws order out of all the chaos with a pencil, a black marker, and some crayons. Blackstock is autistic and an artistic savant. He creates visual lists of everything from wasps to hats to emergency vehicles to noisemakers. In the spirit of the Outsider art of Henry Darger and Howard Finster, Blackstock makes art that is stirring in its profusion and detail and inspiring in its simple beauty."

Born blind and severely autistic, within a couple years Rex's family discovered he also happened to be a music savant. Rex can hear and repeat any piece of music he hears, including lyrics - in any language! Truly incredible and I look forward to this more in-depth look into an amazing life, as written by his mother.
