Bernie Wallett Artist Bio:
Born, Croydon, South London 1953. While still at school became interested in photography. At age 16 in 1969 started photographic career as studio assistant with local portrait studio. Over a 30 year career he has worked in most aspects of the trade including Industrial, Advertising, Architectural and Reportage, taking equal interest in both taking photographs and the many possibilities of darkroom techniques. In mid 2012 he began to paint, discovering a passion for Abstract art, finding inspiration with the infinate possibilities for experimentation with different materials and techniques. He found the skills used in photography, such as seeing a picture as much as creating it, an openness to different techniques and shameless improvisation, much to his surprise directly transferable to the creation of abstract art. In mid 2013 he embarked on his first serious body of work, the Approaching The Speed of Light series, of which he is now in the process of making available, for the first time via this web site. For him a successful painting is one which re-creates with true authenticity the forces of nature i.e. that seen in physics, chemistry and biology. An outline to my artistic philosophy--- My aim is to re-create the physical universe in artistic form. I approach my work in the same spirit of the alchemist, experimenting with different pigments, materials and techniques. A perceptive critic has recently descibed my paintings as "a careful balance of accident and design" I can't think of a better description. Art and artists I like- Pollock, Kandinsky, Van Gough, Hopper, Hockney, Art nouveau, Art deco graphics and sculpture, Chinese and Japanese watercolours. Matt cartoons. I`d much rather one of my paintings were considered pretentious than mediocre.I'm also moved to create by music and musicians that resonate with me. For me the best artist of all is the great cosmos itself . No person is capable of producing pictures and sculptures of such beauty and awesomeness.
