Rebirth of the Deity
new paintings by Andy Berg
Ironton is pleased to host Andy Berg’s exhibit of large abstract panels. Working quickly with gesture and color he strives to transcribe his subconscious. He begins a painting with no preconception and the results- employing automatism-often surprise, even him.
“What these pieces of art are, are expressions of something just below my conscious perception, that are trying to break through into consciousness, to become ‘known’. When I paint I am amazed how much it’s not me, and how much I must trust the unknown just by using acceptance."
"Rebirth of the Deity is my work with an encounter inside myself. Trying to collaborate, with the greater thing inside me, and find meaning inside, rather than outside.” Andy Berg, 2011
