This event has ended.

Ellen Berkenblit’s eighth solo exhibition at Anton Kern Gallery, Sistergarden, populates the main space with eleven large-scale paintings that form a dizzying daisy-chain of faces.

Each face emerges from a velvety abyss with unbridled intensity and a noticeable shift in palette. The artist’s signature electric colors now merge with earth tones and twilight blues. This otherworldly color language, coupled with formal choices in cropping, creates a subplot of intrigue. Berkenblit’s compositions intentionally exclude narrative attributes, allowing the viewer to focus on the emotional qualities of paint application, brushstroke, and shape.
