Jacob Elior Berkowitz aka ROILE is an abstract painter from St. Louis, MO, U.S.A.
Berokwitz’s work is a free form exploration of color, shape, and line. It’s absence of representative subject matter opens the conversation of interpretation to the viewer and allows the creation of something that feels new yet familiar. Places and spacial interactions experienced daily invoke movement and direction within the works. The lines and shapes are informed by raw brush strokes, gestural motions, and designs found in nature, particularly wood; referencing grains and knots to drive the composition. Berkowitz strives to create work which holds fluidity, moments of tension, and ultimately reaches a state of ambiguous belonging and wholeness.
