SIMON BERSON

Artist Statement   CV  Press Release

Simon Berson creates fantastical collages, and begins with his sketchbook. He draws soft and swooping organic forms colored in with looping strokes of colored pencil. Once finished, he selects drawings to cut out. Berson supported his family by working as a technical writer and illustrator. He still finds himself fascinated by images of technology, and subscribes to a variety of trade magazines. These offer him the mechanical imagery that Berson cuts out to combine with his drawings, and achieve an unexpected effect.  Berson’s chief objective is to “make the mind wonder and wander.”
