Bert Ernie is a unique artist in the world. As a painter, he has two distinct approaches.
Original paintings for sale – Photorealist paintings
Bert Ernie uses photorealism to create easy to understand paintings – the goal is to communicate to the widest range of people. Anybody can understand the message he makes with each photorealist painting – as well as appreciate the depiction of the subject at hand. Bert has painted portraits, still life, landscapes and specialized genre pieces that are unique to photorealism. His work is visually appealing and at the same time offers an intellectual approach to the work.
Original paintings for sale – Abstract paintings
Bert Ernie also paints a completely wild and emotional abstract expressionistic style which is equally valid as his photorealistic work. For many people, they would consider the abstract art to be the polar opposite of the photorealist work. In some ways it is but in many ways is an approach that is actually based on ‘tearing up and rearranging’ a photograph (or an imaginary photograph). These works start with a definite title in mind and end up with a chaotic, dynamic and colourful display of paint that expresses Bert’s absolute abstracted version of the subject.
