Timothy Berg and Rebekah Myers are a Claremont, Calif.-based artists’ collaborative known for casting everyday objects in unexpected ways that provoke questions of materiality, surplus and rarity, and the consequences the of 21st century consumer’s desires.
The duo has created a bright green, ceramic rabbit that will be displayed near the DART CityLine/Bush Station in honor of the wildlife historically found in the area. The sculpture examines the value of authenticity and how it is recognized and valued. The rabbit is a singular representation of the multitude; a profusion of something is said to have multiplied “like rabbits.” It reinforces the idea that while it may appear each one of the multitude seems similar, they are all still one of a kind. The green color reinforces humorous allusions of freshness, renewal, burgeoning life and vitality.
Berg and Myers have participated in multiple solo and group exhibitions in the US, Mexico, South Korea, Qatar and Kuwait. Their work is included in many private and public collections including The Betty Woodman Collection at the University of Colorado and the Biedermann Museum in Germany. Berg additionally works as an Associate Professor of Art at Pitzer College in Claremont, Calif. and a freelance curator. Both received Bachelors of Fine Arts from the University of Colorado in 2000. Berg earned his master’s degree in fine arts in 2003 from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Myers continued studies in graphic design at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco.
