Laura Berman invites us into her sunny, garage-turned-studio to get a closer look at her luminous prints and learn about how she mixes unique color combinations.

“Like slowly growing facets, my ‘Gems’ series of monoprints is built with multiple layers of shapes and tones of color. Each image synchronizes into its own multi-dimensional, organic and abstract shape that lives between worlds of light and shadow, solidity and fluidity, color and form.”
“There is only minimal pre-planning to my work, and I purposefully embrace possibility in how my images come together. Colors, compositions, and number of layers are all decided in the printing process itself, which maximizes chance happenings in my work.”
“Everything I do with color is improvisational, and each image I make has its own personality of unique color combinations. Working with an endless array of colors is one of my very favorite parts of making prints.”
