'Rueven Berman Kadim was born in Philadelphia in 1929, and lived and studied in Los Angeles until he settled in Israel in December 1950. Inspired by artists such as Joesph Albers, his shaped acrylic paintings, most of them hard edge compositions of tantalizingly crucial composition and amazingly accurate technique, seem dictated by irrefutable logic.

In 1976 Berman exhibited 20 large black and white paintings on plywood, identical in shape, colour and measurement, called 'the Cube Variations' at Tel Aviv Museums of Art. Berman has based this series on a selected mechanical perspective drawing of a transparent cube, translating the contour line of the drawn cube into a literal shape of the painting, or, as he has termed it: 'a three dimensional silhouette''
