Bernd Haussmann

BIOGRAPHY
Bernd Haussmann was born in Tuebingen, Germany, has been a US resident since 1994. He divides his time between the north shore of Boston and western Maine, where he also works with his wife Anne on a 450-acre nature project. 
 
Haussmann employs a deep exploration of color, gesture, texture and surface in paintings on metal, acrylic glass, wood, canvas and paper that seem to mimic some of the ways that natural surfaces change as a result of time, temperature, environment. Haussmann’s work distills and interprets a range of sources and observations, from nature to language to dreams to architecture to a total investment in the possibilities inherent in a single color. Haussmann’s singular elements are illuminated by bold colors and a discussion of gesture, surface and the subconscious that, though contemporary in nature, can be traced directly back to the moment of abstract expressionism’s passionate public introduction and the philosophy that defined Provincetown’s schools from Hofmann to Stout. 
 
The artist has been a mentor and educator at the Art Institute of Boston, Lesley University and the New Hampshire Institute of Art. He has also been the Artist-in-Residence at the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT from 2012-2015. He and his wife Anne divide their time between the North Shore of Boston and western Maine. Haussmann’s work is part of private and public collections and can be seen throughout the US and abroad, in galleries, at non-profit venues and international art fairs. His work has appeared in such publications as Metropolitan Home, Elle Decor, and The Boston Globe. 
 
Haussmann's works are in many corporate collections and in a number of museum collections including Art Museum of South Texas, Danforth Museum of Art, MA, Hunterdon Museum of Art, Clinton, NJ, Longview Museum of Fine Arts, TX, Lyman Allyn Museum of Art, CT, Montserrat College of Art, MA, Museum der Stadt Reutlingen, Germany, Provincetown Art Association and Museum, MA, and Stadtmuseum, Tuebingen, Germany.
