Pernel Berkeley

My work has consistently been directed by a desire to create a visual language which reflects a range of interests. A youthful fascination with the Bauhaus Movement exerted a lasting influence on my development as an artist, as well as serving to inspire me to find my own path. Although forms I choose continue to evolve, the use of color is fundamental to all my work. Combined with choices concerning the impact and interactions of shape and form, I have attempted to produce an original and unique visual language. Over the years, guided by this principle, I believe I have found a method of producing works in which I aim to produce thought-provoking and engaging visual experiences
