Laura Berger, Meeting, 2023; Limited Edition Print
Laura Berger is a Chicago-based artist exploring interdependence and self-understanding through emotive, surrealist figurative compositions. Utilizing intuitive color palettes and minimalist environments, the artist explores the senses, memories and experiences that float between the spiritual, emotional and physical planes. Recent exhibitions include Tomorrow is Tomorrow is Tomorrow at Kristin Hjelledjerde (London UK); The Bioelectric Self at The Pit (Los Angeles, CA); Power of Femininity at Kutlesa (Goldau, CH); After Midnight at Rule Gallery (Denver, CO); Flight Path at Hashimoto Contemporary (New York, NY); and Soft Bound at Eve Leibe (London, UK) among many others. In 2021 the artist was awarded The Hopper Prize and her work has been featured in Hi-Fructose Magazine, Juxtapoz Magazine and New American Paintings.
Meeting is a serene composition of three figures, ensconced in one anothers physical and emotional worlds—crossing auras and time under the light of the moon. Using transparent washes, each of the figures melt into and emerge from one another, connected through touch and abstracting disconnection between the self and others. A waking spirit rises from the bodies at rest, opening to a land of dreams. A viewer’s canvas— Meeting rejects definition and opens itself up like the arms of a long lost friend or a personal myth that grabs hold between sleeping and waking. Fifteen prints in the edition are hand-embellished by the artist, who has included additional light and transparencies throughout the compositions, making each a unique work.
