'Turning of Day' by Stefan Berg

United Contemporary is proud to present Turning of Day, a contemplative solo exhibition by Toronto-based painter Stefan Berg. In this new suite of plein air paintings and studio interpretations, Berg draws out and emphasises a compelling geometry found in nature. Grasping the weight and mass of the subject, both in feeling and substance, the artist makes real the physicality of experience, to procure a tangible, haptic touch for the eyes. However, the true subject of this exhibition is light. Returning to familiar landscapes with cumulative inquiry, Berg has painted on-site and from memory, the evanescence of time, exploring temporality and duration. As a result, his paintings are evocative of the mechanics of seeing, layering and revising the passing light and atmosphere observed over days, sometimes months, even years.
