Jon Gernon BIO

"It's all Alchemy & Witchcraft, mixed with a bit of beauty & humor. If done correctly then you Magic."

Jon Gernon is a painter and independent curator based in Troy, New York. Gernon’s current body of work began in 2016 with the idea of creating larger works in a looser fashion. Combining sensuous richness, historical myths and a studio filled with background sounds of shoegazing, dreampop, and noise, Gernon creates moments of conscious dreams and floating beauty. With no intentions other than to manifest genuine beauty, Gernon has created a body of myths and fables for the viewer’s personal interpretation, as well as a collection of stories to include and inspire people.

Jon Gernon is a painter, printmaker and independent curator living in the Eastside of Historic Troy, NY. His current works focus on creating modern day fables, allegories and lore.
