This was once thought of as a symptom of psychosis, but is now recognized as a normal, human tendency

This phenomenon is known as Pareidolia, the human tendency to attach importance to random or vague stimuli (both visual and auditory).

Leonardo da Vinci wrote about pareidolia as an artistic device. “If you look at any walls spotted with various stains or with a mixture of different kinds of stones, if you are about to invent some scene you will be able to see in it a resemblance to various different landscapes adorned with mountains, rivers, rocks, trees, plains, wide valleys, and various groups of hills,” he wrote in a passage in one of his extensive notebooks.

Sometimes artists use this phenomenon to their advantage by embedding hidden images in their work. This phenomenon seems to be a fortunate quality that the artist Debra Bernier exploited to the maximum extent. Her images speak to us.

One of the most representative materials of art is undoubtedly wood. Due to its availability and processing, wood is a material with high plasticity, in which, in addition to commercial use, it is also widely used in the art world.
