Laura Berman creates images that describe multiplicity, collections and sequences. The things she collects and lives with inspire her, and there is a focus on color, pattern and layers of imagery in her work.
She has created site-specific exhibitions and exhibited her print work at numerous galleries and museums around the country and internationally. Her prints are collected internatonally and are published through her own studio in Kansas City and also with Pele Prints (St. Louis, Missouri, USA) and Círculo del Arte (Barcelona, Spain). She has been a visiting artist and has worked as an artist-in-residence at a number of institutions around the world.
Laura Berman is a Professor at the Kansas City Art Institute, where she has taught in the Printmaking Department since 2002. Together with her husband, she runs Prairieside Cottage and Outpost, a family-friendly artist’s retreat in Matfield Green, Kansas, USA.
Her work has been featured in Contemporary American Printmakers by E. Ashley Rooney/Stephanie Stanish, The Book of Probes by David Carson/Marshall McLuhan, Printmaking at the Edge by Richard Noyce, and A Survey of Contemporary Printmaking, by Ehlers, Ehlbeck and Muise.
Berman’s work is represented by Weinberger Fine Art in Kansas City, Long View Gallery in Washington, D.C. and Uprise Art in New York City.
