"Berman described her musical approach to composition during a studio visit with The Print Perspective: 'I think about music a lot when I work,' she said. 'I’m not a musician, but I think about what kind of music I like and how it’s composed. How there’s variations on a theme, and there’s rhythm and balance, different instruments that come in or go out. I just think about those relationships and tone as a parallel to how I print and sort of my own creative process.' Resolutely, some of the richest movements in the Umbra series arise when the print has received multiple passes on the press and the various layers interact. Here, when the layers of semi-transparent inks overlap, new phantom colors seem to emerge."

– Amelia Ishmael, independent writer, curator, and artist
