A profusion of blooms on a tree branch, this piece was created from my imagination, not using a photo. I use a multi-step, layering process that includes several different viscosities of acrylics, including acrylic inks, fluid acrylics and heavy body acrylics. I use multiple tools to get the paint on the canvas, including traditional brushes, palette knives, even sticks. The exuberance of the colors are intense, but balanced well against the much calmer light taupe background.

This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished white edges. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Bryan

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.
