"Printmaker and Painter who works with with unique variations of color, pattern and form."
Laura Crehuet Berman is a native of Barcelona, Spain, where her love for pattern, design and bold colors originated. She has exhibited in over 150 exhibitions at galleries and museums internationally and her prints are widely collected.
Berman creates images inspired by the natural world that layer time, space, form and color together. Berman is equally mesmerized by the miniscule and the monumental; supernovas exploding into far away galaxies and ancient oddly-shaped pebbles that have never been touched before. Her work reflects the connections between these expanses and details within space, and how even the smallest action can create a cascade of events and phenomena.
Her work has been featured in The Book of Probes by David Carson / Marshall McLuhan, Printmaking at the Edge by Richard Noyce, Contemporary American Printmakers by Rooney, Standish, and A Survey of Contemporary Printmaking, by Ehlers, Ehlbeck and Muise.
Laura Berman's work is represented by Long View Gallery (Washington, D.C.), Olson-Larsen Gallery (Des Moines, IA) and Uprise Art (New York City). She publishes her work through Bedrock Art Editions (Kansas City, MO), Círculo del Arte (Barcelona, Spain), Grand Image (Seattle, WA), West Elm (New York, NY) and Pele Prints (St. Louis, MO).
Berman is currently a Professor at the Kansas City Art Institute, where she has taught printmaking and book arts since 2002. She received her BFA from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University and her MFA from Tulane University.
Together with her family, Berman runs Prairieside Cottage and Outpost, a family-friendly artist retreat in the Flint Hills of Kansas.
