Laura Crehuet Berman is a native of Barcelona, Spain, where her love for pattern, design and bold colors originated. Her work’s focus on relationships and recombination of forms relate to her nomadic history of relocation and travel. Indeed, she is always comfortable anywhere as long as her personal collections of things are nearby– and this is her inspiration.
Her work has been featured in The Book of Probes by David Carson / Marshall McLuhan, Printmaking at the Edge by Richard Noyce, Contemporary American Printmakers by Rooney, Standish, and A Survey of Contemporary Printmaking, by Ehlers, Ehlbeck and Muise.
Laura Berman's work is represented by Weinberger Fine Art (Kansas City, MO), Long View Gallery (Washington, D.C.), Olson-Larsen Gallery (Des Moines, IA) and Uprise Art (New York City). She publishes her work through Bedrock Art Editions (Kansas City, MO), Círculo del Arte (Barcelona, Spain), Grand Image (Seattle, WA) and Pele Prints (St. Louis, MO).
