Jerry Kearns's avatar Jerry Kearns

“psychological pop” paintings and video shorts represent a multidimensional quantum universe. Juxtaposing varied modes of representation, Kearns presents a visual mash-up that highlights how certain iconography expresses American belief structures. In compositions rife with conflict, questioning, contradictions and intrigue, Kearns depicts iconic figures sourced from Western popular culture engaged in perpetual power struggles, though it’s never clear who is winning. His characters fluctuate between protagonist and antagonist in a narrative that reflects our own constructions of reality – a matrix of thought where time and space are condensed and presented in a single, tense moment.
