      After years of creating paintings, drawings, and architectural glass panels, and installations, I had a dream in which I saw over 200 images--completed artworks--flashing across my dreaming memory.  When I woke up, I painted the first one I could remember and have been influenced by this vision ever since.  So my art is influenced by dreams, my Aikido training, Egyptian and Asian artwork, and natural imagery found while exploring caves.


Bay Area artist Lou Bermingham has been creating art for over 25 years while also spending time in his art and martial arts studies--particularly Aikido-- in  Egypt, Japan, and France. 

In 2011, the Triton Museum of Art presented a solo exhibition of Lou's recent paintings.

Lou has exhibited widely in the USA including NYC, as well as in France, and Cairo, Egypt.  He has an international clientele of collectors from San Francisco, LA to New York City to Paris to Tokyo to Sydney, Australia. 

"Lou Bermingham has one foot firmly planted in the traditions of Color Field Painting and the other stepping ever-so-lightly back into the realm of Abstract Expressionism.  His works represent contemplation through action, and so bridges the gap between the two once opposing camps."

Preston Metcalf, Chief Curator Triton Museum of Art, California
