Gary Berg exhibits artwork at Gallery IMA — until June 1st —

21 May

Seattle artist Gary Berg gives what is dead and disposed of a new life with his barbwire and trophy mount sculptures. His use of discarded trophy mounts accentuates the disposable nature of our society and man’s obsession with death and destruction.

Berg grew up in eastern Montana. His father was a game Warden, though he himself has never hunted. His work is informed by the vastness of his birthplace and the intimacy of nature underfoot. Gary’s previous work with concrete and mixed media sculpture shares the same combination of the natural and the man-made as his latest body of work does.

Gary received his Masters of Fine Arts degree from Ohio State University in 1980, and has work in several collections across the country.

    Is this the same Gary Berg that hung around doing odd jobs and stealing license plates in Bigfork, Montana?
