The Biography at


The images of Andrew Wernick explore the nature of light in an abstract form with a fascination of the interrelationship of color and music. The sensations appear to be analogous but in different frequencies. Wernick’s artwork ranges from original works on paper and collage, to larger images on canvas. The work may be found in many private and corporate collections throughout the United States, Canada and Europe. When Andrew’s not painting, he can be found practicing an invention or fugue by Bach on his Steinway piano, or lying on a beach trying to make some sense out of another computer manual.
