RECENT EXHIBITION

 

COLOR CURE

an invitational exhibition

May 6th – June 26th, 2021

“Bold layers of perfectly mixed ink is pressed in soft oval shapes to create complex colour gradients that pull the viewer in. The mix of blended and hard edges builds a glow emanating from the work. Berman’s monoprints allow each pigment to have the freedom of movement and surprise while she masterfully manipulates the media to create controlled, precise and yet unpredictably beautiful imagery.

In essence, Laura Cruhuet Berman’s monoprints are a wonderful example of control and chance working together to create truly stunning images. She has an incredible eye for captivating colour palettes and each work shines with her bright and cheerful energy.”

My images are painted and printed onto paper in a series of iterations. Families of colors, imagery and compositions relate together closely in my work without ever duplicating each other. This way of working enables an important physical labor to my research and ideas, and new connections build in tangible ways as I create my work. As layers build, imagery compounds, colors mix, and patterns form. I keep my process of working dynamic and playful so that my images can evolve as they are made, in turn, building entirely new worlds.”
