Bert Beirne

A native of Cincinnati, Ohio, Bert Beirne received her BFA at the University of Cincinnati.  A Georgia resident for over two decades, where she is developing and perfecting her approach to still life, Beirne chooses her subjects from a variety of materials and textures, including Madeira cloths, Persian rugs, metal, glass, porcelain, books and fruit, and she plans, selects and sets them up to produce contrasts of color, texture and value, and to show the interplay of light on those objects.  She is especially interested in creating the movement of light across the painting and begins each with multiple layers of oil on Belgium linen or gessoed panels.
