Jonathan Herbert

"As a painter, I work in shamanic and alchemical traditions; going forth to other worlds to bring back quantum consciousness in visually accessible forms. I attack the canvas with vehemence and joy."

Painter Jonathan Herbert revels in all life has to offer. One can smell the paint of each canvas; even prints communicate the full body dance of the original painting. In his creative process, his very being is ensnared in the transmutation of our planet's energies and experience. From glorious landscapes to the gritty underbelly of New York City, if you watch and wait long enough, you will feel his creation in your body, and in your heart.

As a materials fanatic, Herbert creates with the finest available: lead-primed Belgian linen or completely rag papers from world-renowned mills; the best paints and brushes. His inspiration dictates the use of: alla prima oil on linen; gouache/acrylic on paper; and mixing conte or charcoal into a work. Or he builds, wildly or carefully, layer on layer until the works tells him it is finished.

Jonathan Herbert knew his calling at the age of nine. His first mentor had him draw for 10 years before picking up oils. He was trained at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. He consumed "The Material and Techniques of the Artist" by Ralph Mayer, and absorbed the work of his forbears in American and European museums. He knows technique can be taught; art emanates from the soul.
