Acrylic painting on wood panel by Megan Berk.
For In Stillness This Fiction is Real, Megan Berk’s second solo show at Recession Art, the artist draws on personal photographs, movie stills, clippings from home & garden magazines, as well some of her earliest memories to create works that present an imperfect encounter with grace. The subtly textured, organic surfaces of Berk’s layered paintings on panel capture the tension in the quietest moments in the home and garden. Megan Berk was born in Los Angeles and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She received her MFA from Pratt Institute and has exhibited her work at Recession Art, Long Island University’s Salena Gallery, Silas Marder Gallery, Bowman/Bloom Gallery, Scope Art Fair and the German House of the German Consulate.
