New Englander, Harry Bernard, Expressionist, Contemporary Fine Artist, Painter, Printmaker, Photographer and the Original Finder of Urban Street Creatures.

For almost fifteen years my work has focused on a visual inquiry into the transitory nature of life, which I call:
Art Under Foot: SIGHTINGS
.

The images incorporate found objects collected from various locations and are used to expand toward a unique iconography. For example, a coffee spill on a street in Boston may resemble a person or an animal and is photographed for later use, and in this way is brought into an iconic realm.
