A Small Blue Space encaustic, 5x5, 2012

Anne Bernard



My work grants me access to things unknown, each piece arising from a response to materials, the natural world, time and memory. Often a meaning is not immediately clear to me. Just as often there is not so much a meaning as a feeling of connection—something more felt than named.

My drawing process is direct, elemental and searching. I work with tools that limit my control until layers of casual line and scrubbed/gouged texture come together to form an image that is mysterious but somehow familiar or remembered. It feels like archeology.
