Mia Bergeron | American Figurative Painter

''Growing up in New York City with two graphic designers for parents, I was always drawn to bold shapes and colors. Emphasis on patterns and design were household commonalities. However, in my early 20’s during my time spent in Italy, I began to become more fluent in the subtleties that the figure, as a subject, presented. By studying the classical discipline of painting figures and people, I began to notice the curious transformation that figurative art has taken over the centuries. I was fascinated with the figure as an ideal form. In contrast to this idealization, I was also studying classical portraiture, an art form that was tireless in its rendition of details and accurate observance. 

Having left Italy four years ago, I have steadily been working to fuse both my fascination for bold color and design with the subtleties presented in fine
figurative painting. I have been influenced by many different artists, including
John Singer Sargent, Diego Velasquez and Anders Zorn. Most recently, I havebeen studying the work of Helen Frankenthaler, Robert Motherwell, Mark Rothko, and many photographers. Presently, I am working on a series of paintings that look to explore the use of transparencies to show both figurative and abstracted forms.
I also teach private workshops, one-on-one tutoring, and am an adjunct professor at the University of Tennessee, Chattanooga.''
