  • Biography

back to the artworks



"The subject matter of all my art is primarily the human figure. My work is a reflection of my basic view of the positive nature of humanity. Through the use of the figure, I attempt to show the beauty of the human spirit, both mind and body.

In my work, even though I'm presenting a moment in time in which the figures are mostly motionless, they all show the capacity to move and to live according to positive values."
- Jerry Luisi
