About

Sharpies, burgers and glass cleaner – just some of the recurring motifs in Bernhardt’s bright paintings featuring objects from everyday life. Outlined in spray paint and filled with acrylics, the pieces are lively celebrations of popular culture and follow a lifetime of wide-ranging interests: Bernhardt began daubing images of the models who had obsessed her during her teenage years, has drawn on the patterns from Moroccan textiles, and is fascinated with Caribbean culture and beaches.
