Harrison Ernst is a Finnish-American artist who works primarily with acrylic paint. He studied studio art at Washington College. His work is inspired by his ancestry, folklore, and his perception of the two as an Americanized outsider.
Resolution draws parallels between elements of the natural world and the various stages of the artistic process. Regions that highlight his process manifest as devolution in the level of modeling. What may appear undone and unfinished is a schematic for how he layers paint. This offers viewers a glimpse into his methodology, while simultaneously creating the sense that they are catching each piece mid-production.
