White Faced Harlequin by Sax Berlin
Fully costumed Harlequin sits before the hot swirling background looking reflective after his performance. With his ceruse coated face he is the archetypal image of our perception of the character. Berlin has masterfully created this work to represent the duality of Harlequin; outwardly calm but internally flaming with intense emotion and desire.
Sax Berlin is unique in using this natural material in this way - beautiful Italian slate. Created in the tranquil Japanese gardens and tea house which serve as his summer studio. This image could almost be a form of meditation in itself; gaze at the face and be drawn into the tranquility and depth of the Lotus Buddha. Once again Berlin has created a work that's unlike any other; although 21st Century the piece could equally be from ages past, bringing to mind the ancient temples of the East.

Gilded Lillies for the Dove of Peace
The dramatic size of this work from Berlin reflects the size of his humanity and the concerns he has for the world. In his own words "there's no need to gild the lily ..... until now.
