One of the 20th Century’s unsung heroes, American artist Judith Bernstein first started making politically motivated art in the 1970’s. Bernstein developed a practice of utilizing charcoal to scale up words and images onto paper. With broad energetic strokes she obliterates the outline of her drawings, atomizing the subject matter into its most elemental, bodily representations. Affiliated with anti-war art movement, often Bernstein’s inscriptions vibrate, reverberating off the page. These drawings serve to captivate your senses and redirect them to the corporeal. Bernstein first created them during wartime crisis in the 1960’s and its aftermath then again in the 1990s, precisely during a moment when questions of humanity and empathy were being challenged. Medea is pleased to collaborate with Bernstein, featuring her Horizontal, 1973 as well as Voice, 1995 and a newly commissioned text work, Medea for its 2019 artist collaboration.
