Eduardo Berliner tenses the painting and the image to question the authenticity of memory and direct experience. The artist’s main relationship to the physical world alters his perceptions of daily surroundings, allowing his paintings to become manifestations of tacit assumptions and misunderstandings. The landscape, architecture, residues of culture and human relationships are reconfigured through personal narratives, memories and the painting process itself. Berliner’s humanistic renderings of living things, scenes from the natural world, plant forms, animals and people, revealed shared relationships contingent on unlikely occurrences. They attest to the slippage between invention and memory, between indifference and trauma.
