Trees of urban jungles / Les arbres des jungles urbaines by Amelie Bernet

by

Amelie Bernet shares her interest and admiration for city’s architecture. Buildings, which she refers to as “trees of urban jungle,” tell a story and bring the past and the present together. The artist captures the ambience of a place as much as the shape of a building in her art through vivid colors and contrast.

“L’Architecture d’une ville m’a toujours intéressée. J’admire ces bâtiments qui traversent le temps et deviennent la nature même des villes. Lorsque l’on s’installe dans un nouvel endroit, ces oeuvres d’art, ou pas, deviennent des repères, parfois des compagnons. Ils nous apprennent sur la façon de voir et de vivre des gens du coin. Ils nous relient aussi aux personnes qui les apprécient. Et si nous partons ailleurs, nous retrouverons toujours ces arbres de jungles urbaines. J’aime redessiner les courbes et les angles et m’inspirer d’ambiances et de lumières particulières. Y apporter une touche, les mettre en couleurs.”

Amelie has been flirting with art for a while until a slow practice has become a way of expressing emotions, finding balance. Collages, watercolors, printmaking often relate on paper through color, the joy of life. You can discover more at www.instagram.com/ameliebernet.

Welcome to The Art of Everyone

In writing my book Everything Else, I realised everybody has their own “everything else”—the thoughts and stories, the experiences, the skills, the imagination, the dreams.

Left unexplored or unshared, they can leave a void, depriving our spirit of something beautiful and nourishing. Having learned that, I created the space here to manifest my own "everything else," and to help others share theirs.

The path here is lined with flowers, the walls are endless, the shelves inviting, the table is set, and there is room for adventure. Bring your own creations or just open your soul for a retreat. This is a space to breathe. Leave the conventional world behind and enjoy.

Thank you for being here.
