Story / Additional InfoThis post “Octopus Meditations” painting explores the emergent principles of visual perception and connectivity to memory. The basis of the physical processes comes from an understanding consciousness as fundamental to reality and to the phenomena of non-locality which particles enjoy. Energy fields are seen as consciousness fields (the biochemist Rubert Sheldrake refers to these fields as "morphic resonances") in which information is shared with other sentient receivers. The abstract expressionist ethos is the same idea. Gesture pulverizes the blank canvas by action strokes and emotively driven autonomic responses containing three distinct divisions: sympathetic, parasympathetic and enteric....all of which belong in the physical manifestation of emotional expressiveness. It has a companion painting listed as well entitled ,"A Temporal Envelope of Dendritic Synchrony"

Ed Kerns - United States
Art Brokerage: Ed Kerns American Abstract Expressionist Artist: b. 1945. Ed Kerns (February 22, 1945) is an American abstract artist and educator. Kerns studied with the noted Abstract-Expressionist painter, Grace Hartigan and through the elder artist came to know and work with many artists of that generation including, Phillip Guston, Willem de Kooning, James Brooks, Ernest Briggs, Richard Diebenkorn and Sam Francis. Born in 1945 in Richmond, Virginia, Kerns started painting at a young age. He attended the Richmond Professional Institute, receiving his BFA in 1967. He went on to the Maryland Institute, where he studied with painter Grace Hartigan. Here, Kerns received the Hoffberger Fellowship and graduated with an MFA in 1969. Kerns first gained exposure in 1972, when he was commissioned by art collector Larry Aldrich to paint 100 paintings over the course of the year as gifts.That same year, Kerns had his first solo art show at the AM Sachs Gallery in New York. Over the course of the 1970s and 80s, Kerns formed a close partnership with the Rosa Esman Gallery and exhibited ten solo shows there. Of his work in the late 1970s and early 80s, gallery coordinator Judith Stein says, “He works slowly, creating no more than ten large paintings a year. His media are acrylic, sand, and thread, the last used to stitch together sections of canvas. Often plywood or upsom board is used as support.” Listings wanted.
