Jon Sarkin is a prolific, even compulsive, artist who creates elaborate drawings and paintings. After a life-altering brain injury, Sarkin became obsessed with drawing. As the images kept coming, the artist unearthed some of the dark and unknown places in his brain. He cannot stop. He doesn't want to stop.
Sarkin's work has been exhibited in New York's Museum of Modern Art, New England's deCordova Museum and Sculpture Park, VSA's Open Door Gallery in 2012, and is displayed in private collections throughout the world.
