News: The Year in Review at Berry Campbell, August 27, 2014 - Piri Halasz

The Year in Review at Berry Campbell

August 27, 2014 - Piri Halasz

I have long maintained that abstraction is the most radical art form we have – newer in its ambiguous essence than all the smart little toys that have come along since--such as video, installations and performance. In all of these toys, the representational and/or recognizable are reinstated, which to me is a step back from the true frontier. 

But of course, abstraction is tough—not easily assimilated. That is why, despite all of its distinguished history and its many talented practitioners, it is still a minority art form.

On the other hand, you might never guess this essentially beleaguered status from the hundreds of folks who have been streaming through the Chelsea gallery of Berry Campbell, this newest and brightest HQ for quality abstraction.

Meet Eric Dever

August 1, 2014 - Meredith Coleman, Mood of Living

Growing up in Los Angeles and now living in Water Mill, NY, Eric Dever, an artist, analyzes and experiments with material and hues, as well as stillness and movement.

In his recent collection of compelling works, Dever’s paintings break through what is stationary and radiate in liberating motion. As Dever says himself, “…while the grid still resides within, each painting emerges into free shapes and tactile surfaces.” Like a rose, which was the inspiring origin of these artworks, the creations flourish. 

Eric Dever discovers the intriguing varieties of texture and embraces the boundless possibilities of the extraordinary spectrum of color.

Eric Dever in Chelsea

July 10, 2014 - East Hampton Star

An exhibition of paintings by Eric Dever, who lives and works in Water Mill, will open today at the Berry Campbell Gallery in Chelsea and run through Aug. 9. Mr. Dever has pursued intensely focused investigations into the methods and materials of painting for more than a decade. In the past his compositions were largely geometric, including concentric circles graded from dark to light and variations on the grid. His most recent work has broadened into free shapes and tactile surfaces, the starting point for which was a rose in his garden that he deconstructed.
