    More Information

    Bergman’s use of materials is as varied as her multi-disciplinary background and influenced by her time in Sweden and Arizona. The artist often references common, everyday things in her work to establish a familiar connection with the viewer. In this case, wooden dowels and colorfully painted balls are suspended from the ceiling in a manner that may be initially interpreted as whimsical, but closer inspection reveals a work full of tension, casting ominous shadows and gloomy landscapes. (stored in two parts with oval base wrapped in plastic)
