BERRY, Paul Neville

1946 - ?

Born at Lowestoft, Suffolk in 1946, son of Neville Berry and his wife Olwyn D. née Butcher, who married at Lowestoft in 1942. He married at Lowestoft in 1968 Vivian J. Rivett. Paul Berry graduated in Fine Art from Chelsea School of Art in 1969 and after having completed postgraduate studies, also at Chelsea, he was awarded the post of Fellow in Fine Art at Cardiff College of Art in 1970. Throughout his time as a practising artist he has been involved in an experimental, conceptual approach to his work. From an early stage he adopted different modes of production as appropriate to his ideas. This led to his making installations, performances, 3D constructions, word pieces, photographic pieces, paintings, drawings and prints. The artist likes to work on a number of projects that are developed concurrently. While the ideas may have some underlying connections they often use different mediums and processes. This reflects the artistís interest in exploring both traditional artforms and new technologies and materials. His work has been shown in London, Birmingham, Cleveland, Chichester, Nottingham, Hamburg, Paris and Sydney and elsewhere. Publications include 'If I had a Mind' and 'An Anthology of Visual and Concrete Poetry' both by Klaus Groh, 'Art in Everyday Life' in 'Pages' magazine, 'Visions, Projects and Proposals' catalogue, 'Art and Artists' and 'Art Review'. He works and lives in Hornsey, London.
