Spirendulum Series

The Spirendulum Series involves 2-D encaustic panels positioned on the studio floor to receive marks made with a wax drizzling pendulum that Bernard swings, pushes and propels, then layers with spirographic transfers.  Aware of the tension created between mechanical symmetry and organic flow, Bernard plays with relationship of control and lack thereof.
