"Ingenious, radical... extravagant talent." -The New Yorker
“Jerry Kearns has long found conceptual richness in a dialectic (or is it a Mexican stand-off?) between narrative and collage—between an urge to tell rousing, momentum-driven stories and a need to acknowledge the nearly paralyzing fragmentation, plurality, contradiction and all-at-onceness of contemporary life.” -Art in America
