Josh Orion Kermiet Finds the Breaking Point

Portland artist Josh Orion Kermiet creates mixed media, collage, and video/animation works that provide a sense of being right on the brink. With swirling, interwoven texture and color, Kermiet illustrates that transient, awesome “breaking point” period when we are able to sense both planes of existence; when the tangible material of earth is propped right up against  dark matter and shadows. The artist creates images that testify to the beauty of the moment right when everything begins to fall apart. Perhaps it is only in such moments that we are able to experience the clarity derived from simultaneously envisioning what things once were, and what they are going to become.

In 2011, Kermiet released Free Spirit, a collaborative zine with Jeff Kriksciun and Raf Spielman (of Portland label Eggy Records) through Container Corps.
