Bernheim welcomes our first Artist in Residence of the summer. Jaime Bull was selected to participate in our Artist in Residence Program during the 2014 year and due to scheduling offered to participate during 2015 season. She will be working and living at Bernheim through the end of July. Jaime received her BFA in drawing and painting in 2012 and her MFA in Art in 2013, both from The University of Georgia. Her work is about theatrics, performance and razzle-dazzle. Masks and costuming are recurrent themes, as well as an interest in nature, underwater worlds, outer space, and fantasy.
While at Bernheim, Jaime plans on developing a combination of drawings, collage, soft sculpture and costuming to create a performance environment. She will harvest materials from the forest and garden to inspire drawings and make sculptural costumes. She will then document live models performing and moving in the costumes. Her final installation will consist of two and three-dimensional works accompanied by video projections. The work will be inspired by the ecosystem and will excite and inform the community about this natural world. We can’t wait to see what she creates.
