Linda Bernhard is a Swiss artist based in Worthing, West Sussex, UK. She received her BA in Sculpture from Northbrook College Sussex and her MFA degree from the University of Chichester, UK. Linda’s work is inspired by her everyday experiences, observations and surrounding environments. She’s interested in places, objects, journeys, memories and stories, rural landscapes and urban spaces. Her hand-cut paper collages draw on innumerable sources of things she’s seen, read, or heard; becoming abstract representations of her own experiences. They express a love of color, a sense of humor, and play with the boundaries between abstract and representational. Select exhibitions include Flux at Free Range, London; Other Worlds, a solo show at St.Paul’s Centre, Worthing; Cityscapes at The Birley Centre in Eastbourne; Studio Work at Worthing Museum & Art Gallery, and more recently BP Open Source Collage & Texture at Tate Britain, London. A selection of her work has been featured on online platforms such as The Jealous Curator, Exhibition-Ism and Cota Zero. Linda works from her studio at Worthing Art Studios.
