National award winning painter and pastel artist, Bryan Jernigan is an abstractionist at heart, but most recently he has been trying to successfully bridge the gap between abstract and representational painting in both his landscapes as well as still life work. He uses pastels in treatments of simple subjects in nature. Most recently, he has been focusing on landscapes and still life subjects using bold strokes and color with both painterly and pastel techniques. Joining abstract and representational styles together allows him to communicate landscapes and still life in a new way. While he adheres to art’s founding principles – line, shape, form, space, and value – he purposefully leaves his imagery simplistic because color is the star. Jernigan’s work is influenced by the Fauvists and by contemporary artists including Wolf Kahn, Louise Fletcher, Nicholas Wilson and Alice Sheridan.
Jernigan teaches abstract painting for the Art League of Alexandria and has taught basic pastel workshops in the Mid-Atlantic region as well as France. His work is held in private and corporate collections in the US, UK, Japan, France, Morocco and other countries around the world.
