Of The Sea
Alberte Bernier’s Of The Sea is a culmination of the artist’s fascination with the ocean as both an ecological life source and a subject of puzzling beauty. The exhibition comprises a combination of mixed media work and panoramic landscape paintings. Many of the materials featured are gathered from walks along the seashore, and include driftwood, nets, ropes and stones set on painted boards and canvas.
