Bryan Jernigan
Arlington, Virginia

Bryan Jernigan’s abstract floral paintings are expressionist and bold. They may remind you of Joan Mitchell’s abstract compositions, as they draw the line between abstraction and floral representation. Although the canvases are alive, full, bursting, and dripping, they seem to be suspended or frozen in their action. Are the floral arrangements coming together or falling apart? The many layers of wild brushstrokes create a lot of depth, and provide a three-dimensional feeling to the work. Bryan sometimes finds his initial inspiration in a photograph, but surprisingly the images are not of flowers. It might be the color of a landscape, or the shape of a shadow, and then his imagination will take it from there.
