Every Day

Ellen Berman

Often noted as a sensual painter, Ellen Berman’s realist oil on panel paintings explore popular standards of perfection with a visual clarity so striking to the viewer that one wonders if such objects can exist outside of an idealized imagination. A variety of fruits and vegetables and the glass jars that contain them become both vehicles of the artist’s masterful hand and forever escape their innate temporal nature. Plums, cantaloupes, eggplants and melons cavort atop vibrant color fields and in raking light that help elevate the every day into crystalline beautiful still-life.
