Inspired by scuba diving, Judith Berman uses soft pastels to create scenes that depict her experience underwater. Whether the artist is painting sea creatures, shells, or coral reefs, Berman is able to transfer her experience in a way that intrigues and interests viewers. Through the use of strong colors, striking lines, and poetic curves, the work excites the eye and encourages contemplative responses.
Berman received her MA in painting from the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM. She has been given various awards including a Visual Artist Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts. Berman has exhibited at the Clark Gallery, Lincoln, MA, Allan Stone Gallery, New York, NY, and the Rose Art Museum, Waltham, MA, among others, and her work is in the Permanent Collection of deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum.
