Italy – Artist
“Signs like rock carvings, precious mosaic tiles that fit into another matter, to last over time.”<br>
Walter Bernardi mosaicist and painter lives in Mel (BL). At the beginning of the Seventies, he attended a two-year course in artistic mosaic in Venice. Initially, he was a landscape painter linked to the Venetian tradition, over time he transformed the landscape idea with a deeper analysis of the relationship with nature and its territory. At the same time he carries out a purely abstract research unrelated to any figurative element, where, generated by an imaginary initial chaos, the colors live and act independently and, moving in space, acquire energy, hide in the darkness, re-explode in the light, oppose each other in sudden clashes between hot and cold, between primary and complementary, fluctuate and dance, they unite enveloping and dissolve in dust, evolving, in the course of work, towards a non-premeditated ending and often a starting point for subsequent, new paths.
