Bernadette Pratt’s work is inspired by her earlier nomadic lifestyle. Her artistic explorations are fueled by place, by the interior and exterior surroundings, by the calm and chaos of nature, and the fickle nature of simply being. Her artistic journey is marked by success, and accompanied by occasional failure. These opposing outcomes of achievement and disappointment are constant companions when working with clay. In her recent body of work, “Constructed Attachment,” Bernadette tries to address the daily emotional and intellectual effort in the technical and artistic pursuit of excellence. She freezes such moments. Success and pitfall are represented in her clay sculptures and find the calm in the chaos.
