In this month’s ArtistsinAuction Newsletter, we are highlighting the work of three artists:
John Phillip Davis, Painting
Zeke Berman, Photography
Marilyn Weiss, Mixed Media
To see more of their work, as well as the work of our many other artists, please visit the Gallery section of our website
John Phillip Davis' work brings a few powerful words to mind: muscularity, quasi-dimensionality, polarity. Davis weaves a visual tapestry challenging the viewer to accord the beauty of line and composition with the controlled chaos at work on the surface. The result is an unexplained passion that grows with the viewer. Davis describes his abstract painting as Post-Modern and Non-Representational. He received his Bachelor of Arts from Grand View College in both graphic design and visual art. He has been represented around the Midwest, serves markets worldwide and works out of his studio in Des Moines, Iowa.
Zeke Berman has been making singular, studio-based photographs since the late 1970's. His works reflect a strong interest in visual cognition, optics and the intersection between sculpture, photography and drawing. His range and sculptural use of materials is varied, original and idiosyncratic. Berman’s work has been collected and exhibited in museums such as The Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan, Whitney, and Art Institute of Chicago. He was featured in the first New Photography Exhibition at MoMA. Awards include Guggenheim, NEA and NYFA Arts Fellowships. Berman lives and works in NYC.

Sister Act
Marilyn Weiss' dramatic compositions convey a signature style focused on relationships. Creating and exhibiting for three decades, her versatility ranges from figurative work to abstraction, from mixed media to monotypes. She portrays the female figure with a poetic realism and fantastical expression through a meticulous use of shape, line and collage. Weiss was educated at NYU, School of Visual Arts, and the National Academy of the Arts. She is listed in Who in American Art and Who's Who of American Women. She has exhibited in numerous group and solo shows, and her work hangs in important permanent collections worldwide.
