Brian A. Bernhard
Pen and Ink, Acrylic


After 20 years of exploring the art world, I have learned that I am obsessed with the creative process. My artistic expression has encompassed just about every media one can think of...from painting, drawing & photography to video, music & performance art. I have produced documentaries about hundreds of other artists, creative thinkers and visionaries from all over the globe...plucking out the hows and the whys so I could learn directly from my artistic heroes and share that valuable knowledge with the world. I have taken all of this curiosity for process and infused it into my current series of two-dimensional artworks.

This new series of works is a journey into the heart of creative flow. I begin with a simple imageā€¦like a heart, a flower or an eye, and then I dig in. I drill down as far as the journey takes. Each painting has its own life and story to live, taking approximately six months to complete. I place the blank canvas in front of me and open up my senses, allowing all of my life experience to flow through. Using primarily acrylic paints, I let the universe guide my adventure...allowing myself to get lost within the narrative so that I can find my way out to a satisfying and balanced ending.
