"Life is not about
material things but
about transformation
and art should be
a daily part of
that process."

Lawrence, Kansas

Bernard Re, Jr. has been painting for over thirty years. His lyrical expressionist linear style in the nineteen-seventies related to the energy and DNA strands that wove into life on the canvas. In the eighties the lines represented the organic interrelationship between humans, nature, light and darkness all seeking some semblance of balance in the realization that we are one. After a short break from painting from the late-eighties to mid-nineties Re picked up the brush again and his work took on the nature and size of an icon. These icons expressed his lyrical style symbolize mental and spiritual pictures of real and fantastical places, people and concepts.
