Meet Yvonne Berenguer
A spiderweb. Covered in water or ice.
Sometimes a tangled mess, sometimes a perfect repeating pattern.
Stacked materials, simple shapes repeated.
Assemblages telling a story.
Drawings of light and shadow.
Knots, pleats, weavings of cloth.
Spillages, steam, ice. Water. In its every form. Autonomous shapes.
A rogue weed fighting through a crack in the pavement.
Marks left by messy hands.
The pattern on my teaspoon.
“Look deep into nature and then you will understand everything better” – Albert Einstein

The Way I See - Yvonne Berenguer
I am interested in looking closely at things within everyday life, noticing the unnoticed, photographing the ephemeral.
Capturing delicacy and impermanence. I try to appreciate the everyday. Enjoying beauty that is often overlooked.
Making space in my life to stop and take it in. Or taking time to go back to notice what has been missed.
Looking closely at structures, looking for and finding a mixture of random and uniformed patterns in everything.
Appreciating fleeting moments and simple materials.
The world is in a constant state of change, for me, documenting these moments is almost an obsessive need to make sure that they are fully appreciated.
My mindfulness and gratitude for the beauty we are surrounded by.
I use what I find to create and inspire my work.
“The pursuit of beauty is the pursuit of the good, the truth and order. Beauty is correct and coherent, positive and pleasurable. To experience or achieve beauty is a way to get closer to a higher being.” Roger Scruton.
