“My present projects investigate the intersection where the hard and fast science of physics collides with sublime spirituality, playfulness and a pinch of humor.  This quest for the magical moment where awe is directed at subjects more powerful than the objects themselves and the ‘aha moment’ happens in the hands of the viewer rather than the gray matter.  These recent kinetic works invite the viewer to physically engage the sculptures’ motion, as an extension one’s own energy, and break the no-touch rule of art.”


Kim Bernard shows her sculpture, installations and encaustic works nationally and has been invited to participate in many exhibits, some of which include the Portland Museum of Art, Currier Museum of Art, Fuller Craft Museum, Colby College Museum of Art, Art Complex Museum and UNH Museum of ArtHer work has been reviewed in the Boston Globe and Art News and featured in 100 Artists of New England. Bernard is the recipient of the 2011 Piscataqua Region Artist Advancement Grant, several Maine Arts Commission Grants and will be an Artist-in-Residence in the Physics Department at Harvard in the spring of 2015.   She received her BFA from Parsons in 1987, her MFA from Mass Art in 2010 and currently teaches at the Maine College of Art and Plymouth State University.  Bernard gives presentations, lectures and offers workshops nationally as a visiting artist but makes her home and work in Maine.
