"Abstraction is real, probably more real than nature." -Josef Albers

Main sources of inspiration in Kerns' work are in the paintings of Jean-Michel Basquiat, and the photographs of William Eggleston. Photography is a core component to Kerns' work because of the compositional qualities it contains, echoing his design style.
