Bernie Rutter

Festival: 2020

Bernie is a visual artist and works with printmaking, sculpture and photography.

Originally from the West Midlands and from early childhood, fascinated by industrial process, by the alchemy of change, by pressure, by heat, by the intervention of human invention.

Within printmaking she uses mark making, to create controlled narrative and torn plates to create more abstract and accidental texture. Sometimes the prints remain frames and sometimes they are shaped into sculptural forms.
In photographer and digital imagery, she plays with exaggerated perspectives and textured overlays. Sometimes the accidental and sometimes highly staged, enjoying the unexpected transformation a process brings, from the ancient to the digital, the veiled, the accidental, not always knowing the outcome.
