Joseph Jernigan

‘My creation of Sweat Painting was born of a yearning for self reconstruction and self recognition in a chaotic world at a critical time in my life. As creatures of comfort, it is simpler to remain in the realm of safety. To explore the many uncomfortable facets of self, to recognize these and to confront them, it takes a certain level of practice in meditation and some form of therapy to overcome. With that being said, as an artist, I turned to painting, as an advocate for self care, I turned to fitness, and by combining the two, I created Sweat Painting.”

Ive been studying how sweat works with paint. A fresh sweat is the best. Never use old saved sweat, its smells and goes brown.
