Berlin’s mostly black and white 'cocktail party' paintings explore the hidden world of “what people are thinking but are afraid to say.”  The paintings are inspired by an ongoing series of personal interviews. Whether the subject is love, temptation, envy, body image, technology, fashion, or social intercourse, the Artist reveals the secret motivations of both friends and strangers.
