Tim Berg

Timothy Berg’s recent body of work has focused on the motivations and consequences of recreational sport hunting. “By creating humorous and visually stimulating situations,” reflects the Colorado-based ceramist, “I subvert, expand and manipulate the network of interrelated elements surrounding this activity in order to allow the viewer to analyze the significance and complexity of this contentious issue.” He is also interested in developing a parallel body of work that examines genetic modification and its social, political, economic and environmental ramifications. The artist received his BFA from the University of Colorado, Boulder, and an MFA from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. He has also studied abroad in Soddermanland, Sweden. Berg’s work has appeared in numerous group and solo exhibitions, and he has received several grants and fellowships, including a Colorado Council on the Arts Scholarship.
