Heidi Taillefer: Playing with Fire and 'Ligozzi'
September 25 - December 18, 2010
Heidi Taillefer’s solo exhibition at the Michael Berger Gallery, Playing with Fire, is a painterly fusion of imagination, mythology and technology, all the while giving a nod to the baroque. These fantastical paintings and drawings are both macabre and beautiful in their execution and content. Also included will be the hand-painted car 'Ligozzi'.
Scott Draves and Cheonae Kim
February 27 - August 14, 2010
Michael Berger Gallery presents a new exhibition featuring the work of Cheonae Kim and Scott Draves. Kim uses the simplest elements of line, form, space and color to investigate the complex and layered aspects of the human condition. Her commitment to geometric abstraction speaks to her sincere pursuit of using art as a means of attaining truth and her desire to keep alive a long-revered tradition. Draves has turned his PhD from the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University to a fine arts exploration of the relationship between man and machine. His work investigates the ways in which technology and digital creations are capable of sustainably and accurately representing our experience of the world today. Moreover, he is interested in the ways that the philosophies of science and open-source can be applied to art. He has said, “I believe the free flow of code is an increasingly important social and artistic force.”
