Laura Berger : Sentient

December 1 - 22, 2018

 

SAN FRANCISCO - Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to present Sentient - the inaugural solo exhibition by Chicago-based artist Laura Berger. Utilizing her signature glyphic style, she explores connectivity and community in her new body of work.

Concise female figures commune, dance and support one another in Berger’s acrylic on panel paintings. Each character is at once an individual totem and an integral piece of a larger composition upholding the communities created within each of Berger’s paintings.

Shadowy echos of figures mirror their more vivid counterparts, evoking a sense of history and unity as in Next Life, pictured above. These ghostly apparitions seem to lend their support and serve as a reminder of past generations.

The new paintings created for Sentient are energized with more vivid and fiery tones, eliciting a sense of power and energy. Berger’s minimalist paintings are imbued with a deep reverence for community and togetherness paired with a perceptive sensitivity that emanates hope.

 

Please join us for Sentient, opening Saturday, December 1st with an evening reception from 6pm-9pm, where the artist will be in attendance. This exhibition is on view December 2 through 24.
