MANUELE BERNARDI

"I'm a forager. My work elevates the vegatal world that we all know but rarely observe in its all its magnificence.  Slowing down, taking the time to behold, contemplate - allows me to create by using the natural elements that I encounter while foraging.

This relationship with flora inspires and guides me to assemble and arrange a palette of natural elements.  They translate what I feel while in nature.  I see the vegetation as a medium to express my emotions. I use nylon thread as its transparency balances the fragility of my work. The visual translucidity gives the impression that one breath could destroy it all:  a reflection of the impermanence of life. The very real and onerous threat to nature makes me that much more attentive to my surroundings each time I go out. Nature is, for me, the poet, the words and the poetry - the spirit of the earth.
