Seven Vignettes | Beth Bergman

Seven Vignettes | Beth Bergman

Form+Content is excited to present new paintings from 2022 and 2023 by Beth Bergman.

After retiring from her 33-year tenure as owner of Wet Paint Artists' Materials, she is back to a studio art practice. These works are deeply anchored in the physicality of the materials. As her paintings from the 1970s and 1980s were very much about color and mark-making, the new work is color intense but no longer fields of repetitive brushstrokes. The new marks come from not only the brush but drawing materials and various printmaking techniques. The grid appears as an armature rather than the composition itself. A new interest in composition has resulted in collage being a significant part of the image-building process.
