My works of Art are created from a very deep love for human beings and the human experience. Depth of beauty, harmony, spiritual richness, and energetic radiance are common elements throughout all of my work. By utilizing the language of Nature: light, shadow, depth, form, shape, proportion, color, and texture which allow us all to perceive the physical world, I am able to fix on canvas, paper, in stone or bronze timeless truths and wisdom pertaining to the ever present loving relationship between human and spirit. I use this language because everyone living in the natural world throughout all eras has familiarity and fluency with it. The works of Art are all composed to soothe the body, nourish the intellect, and uplift the spirit. Preparing my materials by hand ensures sound craftsmanship, enabling them to endure for centuries or millennia for future generations to benefit from. - Jonathan Sherman
