About the Item

Exploration 2, 2016, Mixed Media on Paper, 17 x 10.5 Inches (Image), 22 x 15 Inches (Paper). This painting on paper is unframed. Geometric abstraction of multi-textured ground and geometric shapes in chartreuse, yellow, gray, blue and green. This is one of w works in this series which also work beautifully in conjunction with each other. Nancy Berlin was born in New York City. After graduating from Barnard College, Berlin received her MA in painting and printmaking from Hunter College. She has received grants for her drawings from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the New York Foundation for the Arts and the Berkshire Taconic Foundation. She has had residencies at the American Academy in Rome, at Centrum in Port Townsend, Washington, and at the New Pacific Studio in Mt. Bruce, New Zealand. Her work is in the collections of the Cape Cod Museum of Art, the Davis Museum at Wellesley College, the Boston Public Library and many corporate and private collections. She has exhibited her drawings, prints and paintings in one-person and group shows at galleries she has been affiliated with in New York City, Boston, Seattle and Charleston, West Virginia. She currently lives and works most of the year in Truro, Massachusetts. Her work has long been concerned with mapping change. ARTIST'S STATEMENT: For many years I have been trying to learn the art of birdwatching, and have often been frustrated by glimpsing colors and forms at the periphery of my visual field. In "Flying by: a birder's notes" I try to recollect these quick flashes of color and form and interweave them into a composite, which may include one or several species. Unlike earlier series of mine, where I mourn or despair the disappearance of species of flora and fauna, and the environments in which they thrive, with this work I celebrate what I can see. I see the world in flux and in my other recent drawings and paintings I try to show the conflict between stasis and change; between the unexpected, unplanned, unforeseen and the order and structure that appears and disappears. I manipulate paper and paint to literally tear down and build up the surfaces, exposing what has been and, with line and geometry, evolving to a new equilibrium. My work has long explored systems of thought and knowledge and has used layering of imagery, line and color to investigate subjects as diverse as cartography, scientific classification, urban architecture and environmental change.'
