About the Item

These paintings and drawings are based on a structure of repetitive and deliberate gesture that is intuitive but carefully considered. Emily Berger brushes, wipes, rubs, and scrapes, incorporating the color, texture and pattern of the paper, linen or wood supports, concealing and revealing underlying layers in various states of transparency and solidity. The artist works with and against emerging responses from the materials, painting from edge to edge or exposing areas of the surface to create shape. The rhythm and variety of the bands of paint create movement, broken symmetry and light. In her most recent work she continues to explore these themes in a return to color, a break in linearity with a series of irregular marks, and interruption of the rectangle as the image forms new relationships to the edge. Emily Berger lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She is a graduate of Brown University, attended the Skowhegan School and received an MFA from Columbia University. Berger has been awarded several art residencies and has exhibited widely, including the Museum of Modern Art in Bogota, Colombia, and the National Academy Museum in New York City which awarded her the John Hultberg Memorial Prize for Painting. She is included in the American Abstract Artists 75th Anniversary Print Portfolio, an exhibition currently traveling to university galleries around the country. Her work has been reviewed in numerous publications and is included in many private and public collections. Solo exhibitions include Rhythm and Light at Walter Wickiser Gallery, and New Paintings at Norte Maar, both in New York City in 2017.
