ARTIST RESEARCH – Susan Bernacik

Susan Bernarcik

This artist draws from the natural world using bio-mimicry. Which is designing sculpture and materials that reflect the biological world and its workings. Also ideas are drawn from architecture present in nature. The tactile artwork is made using a variety of methods from layering, stacking, tying and weaving. She works intuitively to make tactile sculptures. Her work generally seems to be a series of artwork, rather than singular. There is a lightness within the sculpted designs and it is evident that her work draws from horticulture. As an eco-artist, she is obviously environmentally aware as she recycles or upcycles material within her work. Something that I like to do myself.

She explained how natures life cycles are similar to our lives, where there is life and death. This occurs so much in the research of artists. She describes it as a metaphor for reality and that we are interconnected. With the use of natural materials, shows ‘life’ after ‘death’ that is to say the wood lives on in a different form.

I have been doing textiles for a number of years and recently started my degree. I have always had an interest in theatre costume design and this is where my passion lie.
