We are proud to have collaborated with Ellen Berkenblit and Anton Kern Gallery on Caleo, a silkscreen edition of 35. Derived from Latin, caleo means warmth, an apt wording for its brightly hued palette that is emblematic of Berkenblit's oeuvre. Ellen Berkenblit paints explosive compositions that are celebrations of line, color, and form. Her paintings feature recurring characters -- among them cartoon-like female subjects, sharp high-heels, smatterings of floral bouquets, and a brightly hued tiger. For Berkenblit, the figurative molds in her paintings serve as conduits to ground her interest in exploring the abstract rather than representing definitive subject matter.
