About


Jim Bergesen is a Photographer and Painter who embraces the possibilities rendered by digital technologies to create an area of synthesis between mediums, in which the representational is abstracted and abstraction made to represent. By re-focusing and re-framing images-- and utilizing color in both pixelated and solid forms, Bergesen filters the static of the everyday to reveal the unseen nature and spirit of these images. 

Life Member of the Art Students League of New York, with a MFA in Studio Art and a MA in Contemporary Art History and Criticism from SUNY, Purchase College, Jim was raised in the Netherlands, Belgium and Switzerland and loves to share his passion for the history and uses of art materials in his role as an Educational Advisor for artist color company, Winsor & Newton, and consults with the international Artist Outreach Program of Liquitex.  His works have been acquired for several corporate and private collections and latest works may be viewed at he Pierogi Galleries’ flat files in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
