Artist's Statement

I began my interactive modular art to find the connections. What started as a simple exercise to help me find personal answers after my stroke (CVA) grew into an interactive artform that has traveled the globe these past 20+ years. People ages 1 to 106 have participated in many arts and educational programs and have connected to abstract art, each other, and to me!”

Berman’s layered acrylics have a transparent watercolor quality. Her work is a fusion of Indonesian shadow puppetry, batik, and stained-glass sanctuary windows. It is a celebration of life in spite of all obstacles.

Berman’s work has been exhibited in museums and galleries throughout the US and in Indonesia. She has shown and shared her work in Grand Cayman, BWI. She had 25 feet of her interactive PuzzleArt in the public atrium at Tilles Center, Long Island, New York. Berman has hundreds of her PuzzleArt paintings on exhibit at the LICM – Long Island Children’s Museum: Swirls, Waves and Puzzles: The Art of Alli Berman through May 2011.
