HC Berg Profile Work Biography  






  Visual art is one of those ways of articulating and means of opening up understanding. Berg’s works display the possibilities of art for taking part in this chain of shaping, dismantling and constructing. The reality of everyday reality and of the perceptions, routines and habits that arise out of it are presented for reassessment. In Berg’s works the transparency of thoughts and mental images has been given tactile form. The immateriality of thoughts has found tangibility: surfaces for thoughts to solidify and grow. At the same time, they radiate visual gaiety and lightness. In the viewing situation the impressions produced by these works stimulate attentiveness and challenge us to see.
–Leevi Haapala
