Berri Kramer

My paintings are based on a "loose paper collage" method. The realism is in the arrangement of shape, form and color which I construct from a “cut and pieced” technique akin to quilting. For many years I have worked as a fiber artist and I literally “build” an image to create surface dimensionality. In my paintings, however, there is an ordered sequence in the translation from collage to paint, creating an immediate impact with surface. But, it is an illusion, as if the artist had dropped and scattered blocks of color and then left the studio. The chord-like palette is derived from the familiarity of watching the landscape in Maine shift in tone minute by minute.
