Patrick Berran Exhibit

Tide Pool

In October, our Vault Gallery will feature abstract paintings and works on paper by Patrick Berran.

The title, "Tide Pool", lends itself to the curiosity of looking and exploring the world around you. The works included in this exhibit will showcase a variety of methods to making an image within abstraction.


Patrick's work plays upon the transformation of visual material through processes of painting, drawing, collage, transfer and printmaking. His paintings on canvas vibrate with a sense of controlled chaos: static held in the confines of careful construction. Images originally pulled from sketches or photocopy-collage, Berran builds up the surface of his densely concentrated compositions that yield the potential of process to re-inscribe visual data as both dynamic and unwieldy, records of infinite flux.
