Marcy Elise Bernstein
Contemporary painter / Evocative abstractions
Marcy Bernstein's paintings are an evocative combination of paint, photographic abstractions, and wax on distressed surfaces. Stripes and bars manifest themselves in Bernstein's painterly hands to visuals of strong, primitive impulse. The lush slashing brushstrokes, aberrant color, and the strong primitive drawing invite us to look inward. These are dreamy paintings, large and filled with allusions to sex and creativity.
