Paul Berger: The Machine in the Window
January 7 through February 8, 1991
Seattle artist Paul Berger has received national attention with his computer generated imagery. The body of art that he has produced during the last fifteen years is built around a core of key structural and conceptual concerns: "the site of notation," the articulated narrative sequence, and the automaton. A survey of his work reveals a concentrated dedication and clarity of purpose that occasionally seems at odds with his wide-ranging curiosity and eclectic, often confusing subject matter. Paul Berger, born 1948 in The Dales, Oregon, lives in Seattle. He has taught at the University of Washington since 1982 and is currently professor of art. Berger has exhibited nationally and internationally since 1969.
