Jerry Bacik, Tarpon Springs, Florida Member Since November 2009 Artist Statement Jerry Bacik is an artist who explores the dimensions of creative expression through the digital media, his dreamlike imagery often borders on visual poetry, and his portraits take the viewer deep within another's soul.
A writer, an actor, a producer, a designer, a scenic artist, Jerry has spent his life in the pursuit of artful expression, spirituality and creativity. He once studied to be a priest, taught in schools, managed theaters, and even played Santa Clause in the Malls.
Jerry’s passion to create, breaks free from outside restrictions, his works vibrate with color and light, his subjects bursting with emotion and drama. Life is drama, and his portraits strive to represent the inner persona of an individual, sometimes fragmented and obscure, sometimes subdued or refined but always filled with emotion.
