  • Artist Statement

    My artwork is a reflection of my personal philosophy. An overriding theme is that of no separation. Whether between the natural and the man-made, different cultures, religions, or nationalities; I believe everything is connected and inter-related. As my work is visual, containing words only in the titles, it has become my challenge and goal to communicate this philosophy of connectedness.

    I’ve decided that the way to cut through the illusion of separation is to “peel back the layers” to reveal the essence of things. This is not to say that I’m eliminating complexity and diversity. The essence is inclusive and contains all that is.

    In my latest series of paintings, entitled “Pulse”, I’m suggesting that the essence of life is energy. And energy is not static, it pulses and vibrates. In a more contemporary context, think of computer code, which consist of nothing but ones and zeroes. Electric current, our heartbeat, sound; it all vibrates, pulsing, to create life.

    Hersh has followed a lifelong passion for nature and beauty, which is clearly reflected in his art. ”Over the years, in my paintings, I have strived to assemble and depict relationships – art, nature, architecture, and spirituality. A world we create, and a world by which we are created. I hope that my life and my art are part of this beautiful yet mysterious process.”
