Title: Deep end
Author: Berg, Sonya Carol
Abstract: This report describes the processes, working habits, materials, and multiple iterations of my work over the past three years. I reflect more in depth on my final series of work in which I have incorporated images of empty pool structures into paintings and large drawings. I consider the pool images metaphors for containment, control of the landscape, the unknowable, and in both a material and psychological sense, the void. The objects I exhibit, drawings, paintings and prints, are generated using a convoluted process. Rather than working in a systematic way, I negotiate rapid impulses, subjective goals, and thematic consistency. When I use figure/ground reversal and gestural drawing, I look to create a hand-touched surface that generates a sense of uneasiness in the composition, and a subjective disruption in the landscape.
