Bio: Jeramie has passionately explored art and movement since early childhood. His desire for creation and balance has lead him to an esoteric communication that occurs when he externalizes through various mediums. Seeking a greater spatial awareness, and access through transcendent realms, Jeramie taps into the universal flow, and pushes the boundaries of the imagination, lifting us out of the known and into a realm of magic and wonder.
Jeramie’s latest exhibition is on display through March 7th in Mr. Rains Fun House at The American Visionary Art Museum. www.MrRainsFunHouse.com. To see more of Jeramie’s Visual Art and performance visit www.perceptionaltar.com and www.circusofwonders.com.

Mantra or Favorite Quote: “Aren’t those moments commonly called ‘odd’, the ones that really make a difference? The others, life’s ‘even’ moments, elide into a hopeless sameness. A glob of gray on gray on the gray frame of a dimly remembered past, and a cold, pre-forgotten future. The odd ones, however, stand out to haunt us, to invade our dreams, to provoke laughter, and, in a thousand ways, make us wonder about the possible and the impossible, a new society, a different life.” -Franklin Rosemont
