Byrdcliffe A.i.R. Presents
Works in Progress
Short Insights into the Creative Process
#2 Daryl Bergman
1. What is your artistic process like?
Normally, I collect lost of objects and images from thrift stores, the internet, magazines, etc. When I start a new body of work, I pick images from this inventory to be made into drawings, paintings or photographs. Later, I usually organize them into installations.
2. What have you been pursuing during your residency at Byrdcliffe?
At Byrdcliffe, I am focusing on paintings. I have made two small bodies of work, one of which focuses on color, and another on small patterns. The idea is that each is a kind of small visual index. Eventually, I would like to make a larger series.
3. How has the Byrdcliffe Residency affected your work and/or process? Can you describe any moments of inspiration?
I think that simply having time to work has helped me to focus my energy and really figure out these creative impulses I have been having for the past year or so. Byrdcliffe has given me the time and space I needed to do it!
