“My central focus has been the human figure and the human condition, seen more or less as the human comedy... and of what visual sense I can make of the worlds of personal feeling involved.” -James KearnsBorn in Scranton, Pennsylvania, in 1924, James Kearns graduated from the Art Institute of Chicago in 1950.
