“The more personal and introspective an artwork is, the more universal it becomes.”
Please join the KANEKO staff in welcoming featured artist Tony Berlant as our first artist-talk lecturer. Enjoy an evening of enlightenment on Berlant’s creative process, behind-the-scenes information, and a deep dive of the concepts of Berlant’s work, featured on the walls of KANEKO throughout Influence.
KANEKO’s new quarterly artist-talk series features creators both locally and nationally who are tied to KANEKO’s programming, exhibitions, educational workshops, or mission.
About Tony Berlant: Berlant is a contemporary American artist known for his mixed-media sculptural collages. Laboriously composed from photo-printed plywood, tin scraps, and metal sheets, the artist reassembles the pieces like a jigsaw puzzle. Reordered, the works transform into ecstatic abstractions, flowers, and surreal landscapes. “The more personal and introspective an artwork is, the more universal it becomes, Berlant said. “[Aritsts] go into the inner world — the world of the imagination– to discover not only themselves but the unchanging essences of humanity.”
He currently lives and works in Santa Monica, CA. Berlant’s work can be found among the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washing, D.C., and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
