Gerry Bergstein has long been recognized as one of the most influential painters in the Northeast. Now, after a year-long sabbatical from teaching, his work has reached new heights.
Gerry Bergstein: Theory and Practice runs from March 1 through 23.
Bergstein’s work has often been characterized by manic activity - a profusion of images, sometimes autobiographical; narrative incidents involving cultural icons from Freud to Mr. Rogers; agitated paint handling. In the past, his work has teetered between this activity and a tranquility beneath the surface. In the new work, this energy is on full display.
