Lanny Bergner

Lanny Bergner transforms familiar materials like glass and sand into organic wall sculptures. The vibrant colors and fascinating textures of his work are testament to his love of the natural world and his desire to explore the infinite variety of forms in nature.


By using hands-on processes of coiling, fraying, twisting, wrapping, glueing and knotting, I transform industrial screening, wire, silicone and monofilament into organic constructions. My desire is to create works that appear to have grown into being. I love the natural world and am constantly inspired by its beauty and infinite varieties of form. This, in combination with my fears, quirks and joys, results in works that celebrate the wonder of it all.
