Kimber Berry’s vibrant installations and mixed-media works on canvas grapple with living in an over-stimulated, social media obsessed, and visually saturated society. Raised amidst “over the top advertising and the glitz of Hollywood” in her native Los Angeles, Berry is conscious of the increasingly blurred lines between reality and illusion, and her work exists in the liminal space between the two. She creates “Liquid Landscapes” by photographing paint, digitizing and manipulating the images, and then embedding them onto a surface shared with actual paint. Her installations likewise form immersive, kaleidoscopic environments, oozing off the canvas onto surrounding walls and floor. They suggest a synthetically hued underwater-scape of coral reefs. “The fluidity of paint and the brush stroke act as narrative tools to recreate the psychological compression of stimuli found in our society,” she describes.
