Kathleen Cornell Berman creates unique sculptures and assemblages using found wood. Artists like Louise Nevelson and David Smith have influenced her work as well as African art, architecture, music, dance, and nature. Discarded furniture pieces, and wood found at garage sales inspire her creations. Fusing random fragments into a focused visual being is a challenge she loves.
Kathleen’s goal is “to create art that offers one an escape from reality and into a place that ignites the imagination and encourages the eyes to dance”.
Her work has been shown in many group shows in the NYC area. She has won two honorary mention awards and has belonged to various art groups. After attending Parsons School of Design for Textile Design, and for a short time at the Sculpture Center, and teaching in the NYC schools, she has found more time to create.
Living in the NYC, with it’s varied architecture, ethnic neighborhoods, museums and galleries continue to motivate and maintain a continual sense of awe. Kathleen enjoys painting, photography, mixed media and writing children’s books.
