Zachary Keeting and Christopher Joy talk with Michael Berryhill at his exhibition Something of a Feather at KANSAS Gallery, New York, on view through May 22, 2016.

In the gallery press release, Chris Sharp writes of Berryhill's work: "The paintings of Michael Berryhill exist on their own terms, unequivocal, stark, structured, phosphorescent and protean. Granted, those terms do not come out of nowhere; they are as indebted to the likes of Pierre Bonnard as they are to Henri Matisse or, say, Philip Guston, and then some. The perfectly unselfconscious faith in painting of which they are a byproduct is almost fascinating."
