'Looking Towards Home' Oil Painting by Bernie Clarkson
Oil on canvas by fine artist Bernie Clarkson.
Dimensions 50cm X 40cm X 3cm.
Bernie Clarkson is an award winning British fine artist from the North East of England, living and working in London. Her primary medium is oil paint on canvas. Every painting is a multi-layered piece of work, with the paint adding and subtracting information.
Land, sea and sky often offer a backdrop to anonymous figures, which are painted in a semi-abstract, expressive style. Bernie's work regularly features the English coastline, where the beach is symbolic of arrival or departure. Notions of home appear regularly as small totemic images of cottages and lighthouses as markers of security and comfort.
