Arrowhead Regional Arts Council and McKnight Foundation Karlyn Atkinson Berg was a recipient of a grant from the Arrowhead Regional Arts Council. This activity was made possible in part by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Arrowhead Regional Arts Council, thanks to appropriations from The McKnight Foundation and the Minnesota State Legislature's general and arts and cultural heritage funds.
UNSEEN REALMS

Artist statement about the series Unseen Realms. This series proved to be a difficult challenge. I proposed to create collages that had a three-dimensional element that included using steaming and shaping bent wood components. I continued to use traditional collage materials, paint, images and found paper, but pushed using more vivid color components and manipulating various new metal leaf tones and twisted wood strips. With each panel I experimented with different paint textures and color palettes and wrestled to maintain quality design, execution and complete accomplished paintings.
Because I approached each panel as a different investigation I risked not having a series of paintings that remained a cohesive group as well. I have to rely that my voice as a painter remained sound though each work was different. Upon finishing the series I re-evaluated other ways to approach this challenge and hope to build on this series using what I learned. I hope these paintings transport the viewer into a mystery of the color and the imagined worlds.

Six White Horses Come to Take You Home
inspired by song Six White Horses - by Tommy Cash

Mhm some folks drink and some folks smoke and some folks love and some folks don't
Some folks laugh and some folks frown folks hear then they gun you down
Goodbye John six white horses come to take you home
Goodbye John they took you away before you sang your song hmm
Some preach wrong and some preach right and some preach love and some preach fight
Takes every kind to make that world go round takes one to gun you down
Goodbye Martin six white horses come to take you home
Goodbye Reverend they took you away before you sang your song hmm
Some people stick pretty close to home others're born with that urge to roam
Welcome welcome to our town hope nobody tries to gun you down
Goodbye Bobby six white horses come to take you home
Goodbye Robert they took you away before you sang your song hmm
Goodbye John and goodbye Martin and goodbye Bobby
Well they took you away before you sang your song.
