Jeffrey Human

PAINTING

Singer/songwriter Kate Wolf wrote,
“It seems we really said the most when we didn’t talk at all
But let the songs speak for us like the sunlight on the wall.”

Jeffrey Human is trying to make paintings that sing to us like sunlight, or unsettle us like a gathering storm.

His paintings are mostly abstracts, because he thinks they speak best the languages of memories dreams and fantasies. Often they are meditations on books he has read, music he has listened to or direct experiences in his life.

Human began to paint when he was young, but took off many years for a paying career and with his wife to raise their children.

He now paints as a kind of self therapy and as a way to share his emotional life with you. His paintings are in acrylic, mixed media and oil.
