On the occasion of Ellen Berkenblit's second exhibition "Ellen Berkenblit: Paintings" at Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects, we are pleased to invite you to a conversation between the artist and William J Simmons. The conversation will cover the artist's new work and her overall practice.

This exhibition of new paintings includes works on canvas in addition to works on patterned “quilts” of calico fabric. Until recently, Berkenblit’s paintings were composed primarily through linear means: Shapes, boldly outlined, moving in dynamic diagonals across a very flat pictorial space. In the newest paintings, suddenly shapes are voluminous and the space within the picture deepens.
