Presentation by New York-based painter Michael Berryhill on April 21

Apr 13, 2015

Michael Berryhill’s work occupies the territory between drawing and painting, fusing an intuitive expressionism with a highly self-aware painterly language built from previous art historical styles.  While his works are fundamentally synthetic in their combination of diverse influences, he strives to extend beyond a catalog of cultural or historical references.  Instead, Michael creates work that utilizes his medium’s long history while also responding to his in-process sensory reactions, eclectic cultural taste, and the material conditions of painting.  As such, his paintings manage to be both sophisticated and raw, offering experiences that feel simultaneously complete and unpredictably open.
