Megan Berk’s series is inspired by the Modernist architecture and its utopian drive. Houses with glass walls and geometric patterns are empty of any presence. However, the quality of the brushstrokes infuses the scenes with a fading effect, generating a sense of undefined mystery.
In other paintings a nocturnal urban landscape appears as if seen through the windscreen of a car during a rain storm. In Megan Berk’s art, comfortable imagery from architecture, interior design and lifestyle magazines is twisted in a mysterious and disquieting way.
