Welcome to the online viewing room showcasing a selection of paintings by Clara Berta belonging to her 2022 series 'Ethereal'.
The word ethereal implies beauty and grace, it suggests an intangible, heavenly experience – that is the essence of Berta's new large-scale works. Her process of pouring and manipulating paint through movement creates dynamic forms that gently flow or burst with energy. Rendered in luminous blues and gold, her forms are made more vibrant by her choice of contrasting dark background colors. The effect is a collection of paintings that radiate light from within.

About Clara Berta
Clara Berta is a Hungarian-American contemporary abstract painter based in Los Angeles, USA. She has been practicing art since 2000 and has become known for her large-scale paintings that embody the vibrancy and tranquility of the natural world through her use of organic forms and layering of harmonious colors. The dynamic movement and restorative potential of water are an enduring source of inspiration for Berta.
With an academic background in psychology, Berta is fascinated by the human emotional response to color and abstract forms. In her work, she recognizes the transformative power of art and its potential for self-expression. These are the central themes of her teachings as an art educator and her creative workshops for women. The physical process of creating her large paintings also ties in with her interest in movement and the body and traces a lineage to her earlier exploration of performance art.
Berta studied advanced composition and technique at the Santa Reparata School of Art in Florence, Italy, and printmaking in the US. Her paintings have been exhibited and collected worldwide, including in Europe, China, and Dubai, and have been featured in high-profile film and television productions.
