Bila Berg is an Israeli artist who works mainly in painting. The subject of her works is the Israeli landscape and its many layers. In her works she refers to the cover which envelopes the land, including the beauty of the open space, but also the inner strata of this earth, while using symbols in reference to social and political narratives.
Bila Berg was born in Israel and creates there. Her works have been exhibited in Israel and other countries.
Berg’s paintings shift between the seen and unseen nature. The artist’s connection to nature takes her outside the studio, to the gradually uncovered nature, which is a source of inspiration for the painting and a basis for the emerging work. The painting is composed of layers and strata which change with every layer. The paintings are nourished by the open space, the light, the transformation of the location and the artist, in the recurring encounter with the location. Sometimes it is alive and lustrous, but sometimes it is cut and razed.
In her studio paintings, the artist combines the two types of nature. Among other things, she engages in social and political narratives. The nature which permeates these paintings appears as an allegory and touches on universal issues of art and reality.
In 2017 her painting was chosen by the two leading art websites, Artssspot and Opening BCN, as one of 10 best painting displayed in Barcelona.
