kirstin BERG

Shift I & II (diptych), 2012

pigment, ink, charcoal
150 x 220cm

Gallery price $ 12,000

Kirstin Berg is fascinated and driven by the drama and randomness of life; by the primal forces that occur ion nature and how these forces matter our psychological and physical experience. Most of the compositions and forms that Berg uses are inspired by elemental forces and the juxtaposition of organic matter she has found or photographed directly from the bush, having been raised in rural North-East Victoria.

Berg taps into the emotional gravity and dramatic tension that lies beneath the surface, with her works on paper often described as ‘unconscious landscapes’. A combination of sculpture, drawing and painting techniques involve a process of hand-colouring and ink-drawing on lengths of watercolour paper. Fresh fire ash, pure pigments, watercolour and spray paint all convey her connection to the paper surface, lending it colour, texture, weight and history.

“Art allows me to meld ideas of past, present and future into a space where contradictory systems and meanings can coincide.” - kirstin Berg, 2014, Artist Profile
