Using anatomical references and mazes as metaphor, Germain’s work explores the relationship of individual psyche to Cosmos; ego self to Universal Self, human brain to Consciousness, personal soul to Spirit.

Also on display will be the artist’s working journals, which he calls the “compost heap” for the gestation of ideas and visions in the development of the work.

Born in Buffalo, NY, Germain attended Ithaca College and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. After living in New York and Los Angeles, he settled in Miami in 1993. In 2003, a two week journey to Antarctica had a profound effect upon his work.

Germain teaches painting and drawing at Design and Architecture Senior High School in Miami’s Design District.
