Abstract Artist: Jack Hernon
Medium: Acrylic, Oil, Mixed Media
My primary motivation for making art is a desire to produce images that invite expansion of perception in the mind of viewers. I am intrigued by all human interactions to the exponentially increasing stream of information, significant or otherwise, that has sparked, sustained, burdened, or entertained the mind of humans through time. I feel that the content of my art derives its meaning from how my feelings and humanity are expressed dealing responsibly with this information in the creation of art works.
