“Roving contour lines weave through Berryhill’s paintings like flashlight beams, in pursuit of whatever it is they are already beginning to delineate. Color backlit by canvas or linen gradually becomes light of day, notions of time and place emerge, as do bits of recognizable imagery— the formation of these moments is possibly incidental, though their presence is no accident. Line and color behave as though trying to remember a smoky vision dreamed just after waking, or an obscure cartoon seen years ago.
Michael Berryhill (b. 1972, El Paso, TX) received his BFA at the University of Texas (Austin, TX) and his MFA from
Columbia University (New York, NY). He has held solo exhibitions at KANSAS (New York, NY); Jeff Bailey Gallery (Hudson, NY); and Okay Mountain (Austin, TX). Berryhill’s work has been included in numerous group exhibitions, at Kate Werble Gallery (New York, NY); Galerie nächst St. Stephan Rosemarie Schwarzwälder (Vienna, Austria); and Lulu (Mexico City, Mexico), among others. Writing on his work has appeared in The Brooklyn Rail, Art in America, and The New York Times, among other publications. Berryhill lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.”
