Stuart Lehrman

“The Portal Series has percolated in my mind for a long time, originally focused on the idea of a “nest”. When I started drawing it morphed into something with broader meanings, including entry into a void, the eye the passageway into the soul, of course, a “nest’ from one stage of life to another.”

Artist Stuart Lehrman creates work inspired by the natural and human-made forms around him. Observation and experimentation is at the heart of his artistic practice. Creating works from crushed blueberries, ashes, iron shavings, and other experimental organic matter, Lehrman notes that it is through “the constant experimentation with the physical properties of the materials he works with,” that he is able to uncover truths and discover new ways of thinking.
