#83: Andy Berg

Andy Berg sees painting as an inner calling, and offers no conceptual mumbo-jumbo when explaining what he does: He paints. His large abstract canvases are imbued with the mystery of invention and the creative process, and almost paint themselves -- using Berg and his armory of brushes and tubes and cans of paint as a conduit. Berg spends less time thinking and more time doing; his 100CC questionnaire follows suit.

If you could collaborate with anyone in history, who would it be, and why?

My experience is that I am collaborating with all artistic traditions throughout history every moment I paint. This is who I want to collaborate with, because it creates an authentic individuated piece of art. 

Who in the world is interesting to you right now, and why?

Anyone who is innerly focused on the meaning of their life.
