What is specific and captivating about Donna’s works is that the central ellement of her works is the representation of horses. The nobility and class of these animals has inspired Donna to dedicate her talent to immortalising their beauty in drawings and paintings.
Donna’s works are simple, fluid, dynamic and with a touch of modernism.Her goal is to connect the eye of the watcher to the symbol of the horse rather than to the anatomic details of the animal itself or as she states: “It is not horses that I paint, I paint the way they make me feel.“
Thank you to so many wonderful Collectors, and to the fabulous photos they send me of my works on their walls. Always appreciative and most grateful.
My Client Appreciation Post.
Donna Bernstein is a self-taught artist, painter and sculpture. Donna drew and painted horses since she was a child. What differentiates her work is that, unlike most “equestrian” Artists, she did not grow up around horses. She did not live on a ranch.
But instead, was spiritually connected to horses with an intuitive sense of them. Donna studied them voraciously; their anatomy, form and attitudes. She had to create her horses in order to have them, her imagination played a great role, and so her stylized abstractive works reflect a non-realistic perspective, but with accurate anatomy.
Donna Bernstein is a contemporary equestrian artist native New Yorker, whose careful attention to the essence of the equine, coupled with a unique understanding of their anatomy and personality creates art in a signature intuitive style.
