Robyn Bernadt is a paper installation artist residing in Boorloo (Perth), on Whadjuk Noongar Boodja. She graduated from Edith Cowan University with a Bachelor of Visual Art in 1999 and has since continued to practice and exhibit. Robyn has had seven solo shows since leaving university exhibiting her installations and paper works around Boorloo.
Robyn works with reclaimed paper materials as an environmental response to art making. Her practice elevates these materials; altering their perceived value and challenging people’s perceptions about the materials they usually throw away. The works take on a value-added life of their own, and the viewer can be forgiven for considering the made and presented objects are of precious materials, given the jewel like crafting that Robyn employs.
