BERT GILBERT IS A MULTI DISCIPLINARY BRITISH ARTISt.
Bert Gilbert has created her own Mythology; each work forms its particular part of the sacred and secular whole.
Multi-disciplinary to her core, she works with wilful and capricious glee, her art seeks to disassemble the demiurges of her traumatic childhood and reassemble their parts with a new, provocative and positive coherence.
The focus of her oeuvre is on personal trauma and how this can be treated totemically, often laced with dark humour, processed through as many media as relevant, using a lexicon of hybrid symbology.
When viewed as a whole her work is both artefact and wardrobe, installation and performance, each element steeped in the energy of the emotions transferred.
Gilbert's ecdysial art is the substantiation of all the ghouls from within the hypnagogic state of a believer in her Mythology: that somewhere under the layers of their skins lies the answers she is searching for.
