Flatbush: 2013 – 2014

With this work, Berman displays his exploration of mystery. The paintings open up slowly over time, inviting viewers to discover their own way into the quiet language of the work. “My ‘subject’ is mystery,” Berman says, really the paintings have “no subject, no object, no story, no theme.” But with their understated enigmatic motion: their color, nuance, and depth– the paintings ask questions of the viewer and offer opportunity for inquiry.
