In Unbound, Beverly Brodsky presents abstract paintings and monotypes for her first exhibition at Carter Burden Gallery. Brodsky’s visceral surfaces are created through many layers of paint. In layering the paint, the artist reflects on the passage of geological time, and how time can be seen through the earth’s layers. In addition to geology, the artist is inspired by mysterious, non-linear realities of the spirit world. Brodsky’s travels to the Middle East, the Caribbean, the Pacific Northwest, Vermont, and Japan have influenced her work. Her interactions with different cultures, mythologies, and religions have particularly impacted Brodsky’s color decisions. The resulting surfaces of Brodsky’s paintings and monotypes reveal her passion for color.
Beverly Brodsky, born in Brooklyn, New York, attended Brooklyn College (B.A. degree), where she studied with Ad Reinhardt and Burgoyne Diller.
