About the artist

For over forty years, New York-based artist Judith Bernstein (b. 1942, Newark, NJ) has created expressive drawings and paintings that boldly address the underlying psychological connection between warfare and sexual aggression. Bernstein was a founding member of A.I.R. Gallery (the first gallery devoted to showing female artists) where she had her first solo exhibition in 1973. She was an early member of many art and activist organisations including Guerilla Girls, Art Workers’ Coalition, and Fight Censorship.

Judith Bernstein’s edition for Studio Voltaire represents characteristics from an ongoing series where objects such as the angry cunt, cock eyes, cunt face and cock face create an anxious and absurdist energy. Subliminal themes of pleasure and pain, death and sex permeate this series.

Here Bernstein creates a humorous and powerful dialogue between the cunt and phallus.
