Detail 'The Whisperers' by Stephen Kerner

Kerner's images spring from some inner remoteness and act in the immediate moment. Here reality is seen in all it's mystery and everyday vision is streaked with dream images
. . . symbols and allusions to magic that can at once attract and trouble us.
All great artists invent a universe, and a new vision of the relationship between man and the world. That is why they need to hear the murmur that emanates from life . . . the voice that Kerner hears and has translated into signs all these years.
