Oil Paintings By Ellen Berman says
Hooks-Epstein Galleries is proud to present a solo exhibition for Ellen Berman. An exhibition of oil on board, Three. Two. One. opens at 11:00AM on Saturday, February 25, 2017, with a reception for the artist from 6:00-8:00PM. The exhibition will continue through Saturday, April 1, 2017.

Ellen Berman’s oil paintings in Three. Two. One. are the latest in a long series of portraits of domestic objects. Often known for her striking renderings of fruits, vegetables, and other every day pantry items, these still lifes become expressions of form, depth, color, and light that defy the ordinary and become images for contemplation. Berman draws a juxtaposition between the object she is representing and what is real.

The paintings in this exhibition reflect both, the outside world and Berman’s inner world. Because of her education in the study of literature and her life-long love of reading fiction, metaphor and narrative have a significant role in her paintings. “I am interested in the notions of beauty, the extraordinariness of the ordinary, and the transitory nature of and inevitability of loss inherent in everything,” states Berman.

Ellen Berman is a Texas artist who earned her M.A. from the University of Houston and currently resides in Wimberley, Texas. This year, she served as a juror for the Wimberley Valley Art League Members Exhibition. Berman has had group exhibitions in Texas, Louisiana, New York, Missouri, and Michigan, as well as numerous solo exhibitions in Texas. Select public collections of her work include: the Austin Museum of Art (TX), Mexic-Arte Museum, (Austin, TX), and Art Museum of South Texas (Corpus Christi, TX). Berman was represented by McMurtrey Gallery, until its closing in late 2015.

Three. Two. One. will continue through Saturday, April 1, 2017.
