CURRENT WORKS | Tim Berg & Rebekah Myers Here Today, Gone Tomorrow

December 12, 2020

The artists' objective is to distill the stereotypical perceptions and associations within our culture into visually compelling objects, sculptures and installations. Whether they are creating an installation describing the impending doom of the dinosaurs or a valise filled with gold lucky charms, their iconography is drawn from the animals, objects and/or situations that operate as commonplace tropes within our culture. Berg & Myers take these generic stand-ins and invest them with multiple meanings through humorous allusions. The aesthetic decisions they make are informed by the consumer culture we inhabit and their desire to create ultra-smooth forms and high gloss finishes that seduce the viewer. Although each individual piece we create may be understood on it’s own terms, the pieces within each exhibition reinforce one another and manifest connections, which make the whole greater than the sum of its parts.
