Biography

Neil Bergh attended the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. After graduating in 1985 he began a serious persuit of drawing .

"My first interest and still primary one is the human figure or face. I like to explore human anatomy and also the anatomy of human situation, both real and symbolic. For this reason I work with photographs and have an interest in it. I don't do strict copies but in a sense "re-photograph" the subject. The pictures I use come from newspapers,magazines, books; some I take myself. The subject matter is all over the spectrum: beautiful, horrifying, perplexing. A strong image is a good place to start. Sometimes I draw animals, add text or lately, do landscapes."
