Bernie Rutter United Kingdom
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.
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. 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.
She is currently enjoying combining a variety of printmaking techniques, including photographic sublimation printing, letterpress and blind embossing.
