Artist profile

Bernie Rutter Artist

Bernadine Rutter 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.

In photography and digital imagery, she plays with exaggerated perspective 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.

Within printmaking she uses mark making, to create controlled narrative and torn plates to create more abstract accidental texture. Sometimes the prints remain flat and sometimes they are shaped in to sculptural form.

She enjoys working collaboratively and is currently working a a variety of project with other artists.
