Jon Sarkin signs with Cavin-Morris



    Cape Ann artist Jon Sarkin has gained representation from New York City's Cavin-Morris Gallery. The gallery will oversee the sales of select pieces of Sarkin’s original fine art, as well as advocate for the inclusion of the artwork in gallery exhibitions and museum collections all over the country

    "Jon Sarkin’s art is a night-ride on an American stream-of-consciousness in an open convertible through the babel of who we are. His drawings and paintings are conversations with a naked self that connects with the naked selves of others through a barbaric yawp that ends up being free jazz, unrestrained and uncontained and ever renewing itself differently. The art of Jon Sarkin is an unmediated outpouring of creativity emerging from a mysterious psychological space we all possess, but which is usually inaccessible. The door to that world was unlocked for Jon by a catastrophic event, but what was lost was also accompanied by a new ability to communicate powerfully through visual art. The door for Jon remains open and through it he continues to share his unique vision with the world."

    Jon Sarkin began his career as an outsider artist in 1989, when complications from a neurosurgery led to a stroke, which prevented him from returning to work as a chiropractor. While his artwork was initially therapeutic - respite from the havoc the stroke wreaked on his nervous system - Jon has developed a truly novel artistic voice as well as a seasoned consistency.
