series: Colors Unleashed

The series showcases children, depicted boldly and prominently, surrounded by an explosion of abstract forms reminiscent of the mesmerizing compositions of a spectrum twister. Berends harmonizes figurative and abstract elements and creates her vision that centers around human connection, freedom, and dreams while also giving viewers room for their own stories and memories.

This theme began when she primarily focused on commissioned portraits. Not bound by commissions, all the artwork she created during that period now finds a home under this theme. This series centers on contemporary and colorful paintings featuring children. Berends had a simple goal in mind: to put the creative process at the forefront without dwelling on the end result. She began with abstract shapes, experimenting with various techniques like using glass plates to print paint on paper, scraping cardboard over the paint, and even employing the backs of brushes to create textures. She explored materials with an open mind, without any grand expectations. Over time, this journey naturally incorporated figurative elements, all part of her unassuming and organic creative process. Looking back, Berends views her decision to embark on this artistic exploration as a pivotal one in her career. It allowed her to experiment, try new things, and explore materials in-depth. With her technical skills and artistic experience, this humble approach has remarkably elevated her paintings to new levels of creativity and expression. .
