Line and color 
behave as though 
trying to remember 
a smoky vision 
dreamed just after 
waking, or an 
obscure cartoon 
seen years ago

The exhibition

Is Brooklyn-based 
Berryhill's first solo 
with Night Gallery 
in Los Angeles, 
presenting a new 
series of lusciously 
colored oil paintings, 
which feature textured 
and layered lines, 
and are sometimes 
juxtaposed with 
ambiguous figures. 

His search for the
moment when a
painting develops
an undeniable inner
animus, a presence
which demands
is rooted in a
fundamental human
desire for experiencing
objects firsthand —
as Berryhill puts it,
the part of being
human that is
worth fighting for
