Marina Berio is a visual artist from New York City who works with drawings and photography to convey aspects of visual experience that are intimate and visceral. She has made family pictures out of her own blood and rendered photographic negatives of spaces, objects and landscapes as large-scale charcoal drawings. Her current project, shot almost entirely on the walls of her studio in Brooklyn, further expresses the interrelationship between several nested realities, emphasizing the mental dimensions of creative process, and the boundaries and internal topography of the body and sense of place.
Berio studied photography, drawing, sculpture and art history in college, and then earned her MFA in Photography at Bard. She has been awarded grants by the Guggenheim Foundation, the Pollock/Krasner Foundation, the New York Foundation for the Arts, and the Aaron Siskind Foundation, and been invited to various residencies including the MacDowell Colony, Yaddo, and Millay. She has exhibited at various art spaces internationally, including Michael Steinberg Fine Arts, Von Lintel Gallery, Smack Mellon, and Artists Space in New York; Judy Ann Goldman Fine Art in Boston; Les Rencontres d’Arles, Galerie Camera Obscura in Paris; and Otto Zoo and Acta International in Italy. Her last exhibition in New York was “I am a Lie and I am Gold,” a group show at Yossi Milo Gallery curated by Marco Breuer.
Berio teaches at the International Center of Photography in New York.
