About the Exhibition

David Berger’s paintings, prints and sculptures are ecstatic celebrations of domestic life. While the immediate subject may have been his own family, his intention was most decidedly universal. Called a “poet of the home” by fellow artist Lawrence Kupferman, Berger created paintings that worked to eliminate frantic activity from daily life and instead asked viewers to meditate on quiet moments shared between parents and children. Within simplified rooms and open landscapes, Berger’s work describes a tranquil space in which there is room for the human heart.
