Bernal’s “Magical Realism” explores the micro-cosmos; droplets of water on flowers and leaves that amplify and magnify details of the structure and surface of the plants discovering imaginary micro landscapes.
“My work is about the beauty of Nature and importance of simple things; elements of nature that we usually take for granted, and whose beauty we don’t take time to observe, like a fragment of a leaf, a flower, or the way light is reflected as it strikes a drop of dew. These themes are recreated making emphasis in the geometry of nature’s designs. It is the complexity within the simplicity. The work constitutes an alarm to us all to preserve the environment that we are part of and we are relentlessly destroying, and without which we could not survive…..
