Kernan usually collects images in sketchbooks, recording the sustained scrutiny and rapt attention of an intense looking process en plein air. The artist reflects upon and reinterprets the images later, in the studio. The transformation through another medium, scale, and process ushers the images into the world of color and composition, mark making and metaphor, accident and control, allusion and illusion.
