Artist Statement 
"I am an explorer. Each piece I create is an exploration into uncharted paths. At times I am surprised or terrified, but never bored."

John Berry is an experienced painter from the United States whose works have been featured in solo and group shows nationally. Passionate about art ever since he was young, Berry explores themes of duality in his abstract works, creating a dialogue between the seen and the unseen. His paintings are characterized by patches of bright colors and spontaneous lines that emerge beneath layers of paint.
