Jerry Kearns.

Lowland Drifter, 2008
Lock and Load

Jerry Kearns had been painting satirical pop culture images since the 1980's. While attending Umass Amherst, I took his class, NYPOP, and spent some time in his studio watching his creative process: using appropriated Internet images, acrylic, and a very specific, flat paint application. I love how they look like collages, which reminds me a bit of Jeff Koons' Easy Fun-Ethereal paintings.
