Donna Bernstein Artist Bio:

The Contemporary Horse - Modern Equine Art Urban Equestrian Paintings and Sculpture The energy, sensuality, elegance of horses are the focus of my work; Large-scale and commissioned equine contemporary equestrian paintings. Creating my art is a bit of a bareback ride; I blend mediums in new and regenerative ways that evoke movement, energy and life. What gives my work its edge is a deep personal familiarity with the physical horse... and an expansive sense that the movement is bigger than what you see. "It is not horses that I paint; I paint how they make me feel." There is more to a horse than just a "picture" of him; there is a mythology, a symbolism; an ancient connection we can trace. My process is infused with this mythology and a sense of the uplifting. I move about large canvases on the floor and athletically create between them. I have watched and studied the horse forever, and with a focused attention to correctness in his attitude I intuitively work in quick, concentrated action, much as he moves, in freshly layered spontaneity. I use spray, pigment, airbrush, and throw or splash my water, acrylics or inks. This physical connection on my part amplifies a fresh dynamic and energy. In my art the purely gestural, minimal, and abstract, are combined. I am convinced that less not only is more, but that it inherently says more. "It isn't the amount of paint in your art; it's the amount of art in your paint." No matter how our culture moves beyond the speed of the horse, I believe the true horsepower lies in his infinite ability to inspire. His attitude and sublime power to communicate and to heal, through form and movement, is the fuel that feeds my passion. As my art continues to mature I explore the persistent complexities of power and vulnerability, as revealed through an ancient and endearing animal. In this, the evocative horse is a most willing and pleasing co-creator. c. 2013 Donna B Fine Art www.donnabernstein.com www.theartistdonnab.com
