Provenance / HistoryThis painting explores the implications of the recent discoveries in Physics which prove the universe as non-local. Particles that have enjoyed a relationship and then separated by vast distances continue to influence each other...a change in one causes a change in the other instantly. This is a remarkable attribute with big implications for understanding human consciousness. Doe all matter have a degree of consciousness? Does the universe itself have consciousness? Is the idea of super-position until observation fundamental? Do question of overlapping non local phenomena exist outside space-time? The evolution of structure and color in this unusual work become meditations on the larger whole in which we exist.
Story / Additional InfoFor many years now, this artist has collaborated with scientists and engineers to produce artwork that reflects upon shared questions and direct observation. The result has been the incorporation of meditation, the techniques of abstract expressionism and the use of emergent visual systems to produce paintings and drawings.

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.
