At a time when art has become synonymous with glamour, Fringe Island is its antonym. Rarely have its lonely shores known the sweet tides of adulation and praise, but the corrosive waves of strife and struggle, they are well acquainted with. Disability, poverty, mental tumult, racial segregation, slavery. When their world made them feel unvalued, the artists of Fringe Island had the audacity to value their own inner worlds, and to bring them out into physical reality.
