Biography   Adam Berg


Born in Poland, Adam Berg immigrated to the United States when he was 2 years old.  Working in a Chicago Factory in his early teens, a spilled bottle of acid blinded him.  He prayed to God every day for a year to return his sight and was prompted to become an artist when his sight was miraculously restored and he received a vision from God telling him to paint.

In the 40's, Berg moved to Wisconsin and worked odd jobs, grew asparagus and opened a small museum to display his paintings in his rural home.  Religious subjects dominate his work.  His technique was highly unusual.  By adding multiple layers of oil paint over a period of years, he transformed his paintings into low reliefs.
