Ellen Berkenblit at Vielmetter Los Angeles

March 12, 2022

EXHIBITION | Los Angeles | Vielmetter Los Angeles is thrilled to announce our third solo exhibition with New York-based painter, Ellen Berkenblit, Other Shapes at Night.

Berkenblit makes pictures that are neither narrative nor representational nor truly abstract. While she uses motifs that include people, animals, plants, and objects to construct her compositions–suggesting the possibility of narrative or representational content–it is the tension between the suggestion of this content and its absence that produces an electrifying aesthetic arousal in response to the artist’s paintings. Composed intuitively, shape and color responding to and covering over what came before, Berkenblit’s paintings evoke pictures of the subconscious; snapshots of visions and ideas that arise spontaneously and are as richly felt as they are fleeting.
