Berman paintings play with the flatness of surface versus the medium, whilst exploring the perfect and imperfect. On first look, the viewer contemplates cohesive colour, design and space, but on closer inspection, an underlying naivety comes to the surface, something which has become a crucial signifier of my method. They are both heavy and light, still or active, representing transitional moments in time. In this way, they find their own identities whilst they are developed in their making process.
Berman has recently exhibited RA 2019 RA 2020 2022 and RSA 2020 RSA 2021 2022 : Melanie Berman artwork was also highlighted on the Royal Academy Calendar 2021. She lives in East Sussex United Kindom. Shrotlisted for the Beep Painting Prize and Bankley Open 2022
