Studio Visit with Bern Rauch

So far August is going amazing. I am inspired everywhere I go. Bern Rauch takes months to complete each piece, and he paints like he means it. There is no one else like him. His technique is unheard of, in fact, apparently he invented it. It's a weird and stunning combination of airbrushing to soften the focus, and adding layers and layers of  a clear gel medium from Golden Paints, (who I'm convinced will want to use Bern's art to adverstise their product, since no one else uses it this way) for texture and dimension, which makes for the most unsual looking surface, and that's not even the content matter!
I am so excited to see our September show, 9/11 Realism coming together. Bern was a part of the foundation for this show, and the true reason why we decided to curate this commemorative show for this year's ten year mark of the 9/11/2001 tragedy.

It is really hard to describe Berns work. You must see them in person. Our 9/11 Realism show will ipen Friday Sept. 9th at 5pm. Please join us for our opening reception and get a chance to see Bern's works, hear him talk about them, and hear him perform his own original brand of music!!! Hope to see you all there. More images about this show coming soon!
