Notes: Alex Gabriel Bernstein presents a bold and refreshing exploration of visual form and story-telling through the art of glass. Bernstein skillfully combines metaphor with the impact and optical quality of glass. His cast, carved and polished glass sculptures provide the viewer with intimate narrative landscapes, drawn from light, form and color. Alex explores ideas about the passage of time and the processes of creation and transformation. The forms of Bernsteins pieces as well as the techniques he uses to work the glass mirror processes in nature, such as oxidation, erosion, growth and decay. As a result, many of his pieces evoke images of flowing water, ice crystals, mountain peaks and jagged canyons all structures that seem solid and unyielding, but are actually in constant flux.
