Martin Bernstein uses art as a vehicle for expressing his reaction to events in his daily life. These influences include actual events, as well as thoughts, perceptions and feelings. Bernstein uses objects from everyday life which he manipulates and changes to the extent that the viewer is forced to reconsider their original purpose and function. The viewer's perception and interpretation are central to Bernstein's creation; he believes that an individual's unique experiences effect everything he/she views. According to Bernstein, "It is the act of discovery that is of utmost importance. . . these objects are only devices for uncovering oneself."
Martin Bernstein lives and works in Florida.
