Berens notes…

“Despite appearances, Berens’ work is completely executed by hand – there are no digital or photographic elements in his paintings. He starts off with raw pencil sketches, which he then refines into drawings in colored drawing ink and bistre on glossy inkjet paper which has been coated with a clear layer of parquet lacquer. The intermediate drawings are then divided into fragments. The glossy coating on the surface of the paper is peeled away from the base and then collaged onto wooden panels with bookbinder’s glue, creating a deliberately layered semi-transparent assemblage which often consists of hundreds of separate elements”.
