Brushes | Asheville, NC | April 2019

Artists leave behind more than paint on canvas. Their creative efforts touch souls long after the brush strokes dry. Asheville artist Jonas Gerard, a dynamo who reportedly paints in an ecstatic flurry, invites visitors to reap inspiration from his richly spattered studio. Colors glow from hundreds of brushes and bottles, while stray drips and daubs transform tables, chairs and walls into Pollock-like works. We see on his tools the blooms of inspiration and hued hints — possibilities — of what’s to come.
