Paintings by Brian Kershisnik
"Humor is healthy. God laughs. I believe that. To avoid a good, human, affectionate sense of humor in art that is depicting human beings is nonsense."
Allowing for inspiration in the form of a peculiar hunch, Brian Kershisnik welcomes the influence of children, artistic greats and cave paintings in his oil on paper and panel works.
Purposely avoiding following one rigid technique, Kershisnik allows for experimentation and inspiration to guide his open-ended images. He contends that the purpose of his art is to facilitate the understanding of what it means to be human - the awkward discoveries, happy encounters, deep sorrows and immense joys.
