Joanne Bernardi is a self-taught fluid artist living in Madison, Wisconsin. Her abstract painting technique involves the use of fluid art mediums. Her interest in art was piqued by a high school Humanities class which began her love of the abstract. She became inspired by the work of Picasso, the impressionists and the play of color on canvas.
As a ‘color evangelist’, Joanne’s body of work expresses her own contemporary artistic vocabulary infused with a colorful lyricism and playful sensuality. She invites us to see the world as a magical, fluid and invigorating panorama for all of the senses. Joanne invites you to join her on this visual journey.
The artist likens creating with color as an expression of the joys of life, similar to those that garden and love to get their hands in the dirt feeling grounded and centered. Fluid acrylic painting is her ‘garden’ as she explores the unlimited grace of the universe’s creations.
Joanne’s most recent show was the Winter Art Show at Local Motive in Madison from January – March, 2023. She is currently exhibiting at Nineteen09 Wine Bar in Cross Plains through June.
You will find Joanne’s artwork in numerous private collections throughout the United States and Greece. Commissioned work available.
