Debra Bernier calls her work, “sculptures of spirits”, meaning the spirits of nature. They often have human faces, but their body permanently connected to the tree, thus combining nature, people and the supernatural. These sculptures look surprisingly naturally as if they were not the result of human creation, as something natural, natural. Conventional driftwood, pieces of bark had fallen away or broken off by drought zaderevenelye roots are for the artist in Canada is not just material to work – for it is the true repository of nature spirits, it can release with tools for cutting wood.
It just cuts off all unnecessary, that hides the story and reveals the hidden world. Often, the artist cuts very thin fragile parts of the rough driftwood, completely transforming their original appearance. Fragile shells flaps, wings behind the back, tangled hair – Debra Bernier sculptures have their own style, and, of course, soul.
