Jarrett Earnest is a writer from Arcadia Florida who lives in New York City and teaches at the free experimental art school, BHQFU. In writing, and through courses—“Object Relations”, “Color Feelings”, and “Emotional Formalism”— Earnest develops a new vocabulary for contemporary art, seeking a more poetic and precise formulation embracing literature, metaphor, and psychology along with a close formal reading.
