Asked about his paintings, in which gestural abstraction and imagery blend together, Berryhill remarks "There's something about the searching for the thing you don't know what it is, the invention part I like, so when I get something in a drawing, I like, to work on it until it feels like a thing."
Kalm notes that "Constructing his pictures from a mélange of early Modernist and Metaphysical styles representing the nescient phase of Surrealism, Berryhill scrapes and overworks the pictures until the have the luster of scrimshaw. Imagery is a tangle of representational forms verging into abstraction and back again, and a love of the painter's craft, a melodically high keyed palette, and the history of painting is evident."
Christopher Joy and Zachary Keeting visit painter Deborah Dancy's studio to view and discuss her work and process.
Dancy has stated that her paintings "are about color, surprise, absurdity and encounters with the self. Forms collide and transformed fragments merge to become new elements as I investigate the world of space and place. Jettisoned in a soupy field of color, they join and evolve emerging as humorous, sometimes grotesque forms that exist in a luscious mysterious environment of their own making."
