Inspiration - Scott Bergey


Here A Klee, There A Klee, Everywhere, A Klee, Klee
by Scott Bergey

This week I'm posting some work by artists I have discovered that I find inspiring in some way.  This work I selected to show by Scott Bergey certainly relates to lots of work you see in the world of textiles and the inspiration for this work is often sighted by textile artist as an inspiration.  I'm speaking of course of Paul Klee.

Bergey sells his work on several places online as well as actively in other venues and you can find lots of information on his website: http://www.scottbergey.com/scott-bergey-art/

This artist is productive and imaginative.  Look at his website and you'll understand what I'm talking about.  Here is a portion of the statement given About Scott Bergey.

Born in Chatham, Ontario Canada in 1967. Arriving late to the art world he did not start painting until the age of 30. Having no formal training, what he lacks in technique he makes up for in creativity and style. His artwork is a combination of innocence and sophistication.
Clearly influenced by artists like Paul Klee and Jean Dubuffet his work is highly textured, raw and childlike although not childish. He builds from simple things – a piece of paper and a brush – but challenges himself to explore texture, colors and techniques. His pieces are contemporary but have a retro feeling. His sense of humor appearing frequently in his art.
