“Process is paramount. By combining photographs and found imagery, Linda deconstructs the reality to create new images based on personal experiences. Her work highlights what she calls Zwiespältigkeit–the ambivalence of being at ‘home’ in two places in an attempt to make sense of the world around her….As Linder Sterling once said ‘With collage, you make things wrong to make them right’.” (from her website)
Bernhard has exhibited recently at Kölner Liste in Cologne, Germany; Train of Thought Emporium and Fish Factory in Worthing, United Kingdom; and at Jungkunst 2015 in Winterthur, Switzerland. Her work has been featured online at The Jealous Curator, Exhibition-Ism, Cota Zero and DIALOGIST. You can see more of her work at www.lindabernhard.ch.
