Natalya Bernstein makes work about relationships.

Mixed media paintings inhabit spaces for her familiar protagonists to re-live past experiences in bodies that are not their own- but found images of people that Bernstein collects. For the artist, this extends her time to reflect on everyday moments just a bit longer while asking how one should move forward in a fast-paced world, while being mindful of each day.

Natalya graduated from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in 2014, with a B.A. in Art Education. She currently resides in Boston, Massachusetts and teaches at Temple Israel of Boston.
