Dr. Andrew T Hermann, a self-trained artist, focused on the process of art as meditation and self-care. This work started while he was finishing his Ph.D. in chemistry. His art focuses on the flow of extended detailed line work. While his works started as just this line work, it has evolved into the inclusion of abstract acrylic paint, or water that moves the ink blurring the precision of the lines. He prefers abstraction as a style due to pleasure he feels by allowing a piece to form on its own without forcing an intent or predetermining an image.
