Kim Bernard

Artist in Rockland, Maine

Amphibious Tiny House

PRESENTED ON NOV 10, 2016
IN KENNEBUNKPORT @ VOL 21

Kim Bernard. Kim is currently the Artist-in-Residence at the University of New England, building a bridge between the arts and the sciences. So far, she has painted 138 henna tattoos on students, done indigo ink dying with a chemistry class, had marine biology students do art collaborations with marine critters, and made a kinetic wave sculpture with a physics class out of gummy bears, shish-kabob skewers and duct tape. When she’s not collecting ocean debris for her various art/science projects, you may find her surfing, because – as she says – “This gremlin’s hoping to get up on a foamy for the first time ever.” She’s also working on a fascinating long-range project, the likes of which you’ve probably never seen before. Let’s welcome Kim Bernard, presenting “Amphibious Tiny House”…

Portraits of Secure - Insecure Housing

BY CAROL SKINGER
@ VOL 24 ON JUL 14, 2016

Carol Skinger People fall through the cracks. Everyone here knows someone who did. Either a friend or a family member or someone you encountered yesterday. Most of us find the Tiny House Movement interesting. If you are an architecture or design student it’s a cool problem to solve. One thing folks do not picture when they say “tiny house” is a mobile home or trailer. As an artist I found two parts of my world crossing paths when I started to take commissions to paint what I call secure housing for individuals. It’s a good little niche and I use the proceeds to help support a family member who does not have secure housing (or really secure anything) who lives in a tiny home known as a trailer. While my commissioned house portraits are much loved and they are warm and illustrative, they would not be accepted in a contemporary art show. A few months ago something surprising happened. I submitted my series of small paintings of mobile homes and trailers to a juried art show at 2105 Three Rivers Arts Festival and received an important award from juror Freyda Spira Associate Curator of Drawings and Prints at Metropolitan Museum of Art, a “Best of Show”. I felt happy about this obviously, but also happy for my family member whose life inspires me to see the subject area.
