Recent abstract paintings by Brooklyn-based artist Patrick Berran. This is his second solo exhibition with the gallery.
The hungrily pigmented free-form vocabulary that has become Berran’s abstract painting process resolutely unifies the tension between surface and image. Highly refined surface skins dissolve into transparency and are overtaken by chaotic imagery. Pulsating nebulae lurk everywhere and adhere to the surfaces, forcing indeterminate spatial interpretations. Sublimely tinted and seductively tactile, Berran’s recent paintings assert themselves as reinvigorators of the medium.
