My Butterflies -
״My interest in butterflies started about ten years ago while I was trying to give meaning to a new piece I was working on featuring lips.I felt that butterflies would be an appropriate metaphor for my search for sensitivity and elegance. I got it right the first time and ever since I have been in love with butterflies.I studied the images of different butterflies from all over the globe, but finally created my own design for each one. I realised that nature has such creative force in giving uniqueness to every kind of butterfly, so I only adopted the shape of this amazing creature, using it as a blankcanvas and crafted my own designs onto it. Following certain rules and elements from the world of butterflies such as the false eyes and the structure of the wings, I immersed myself in creating new shapes, textures,geometric forms and combinations of colors to give my butterflies a new personal touch. Here is a selection of the best pieces of my butterfly collection through the years. They symbolise my dream of freedom, beauty, grace, nobility, movement, color and generosity. If we care about our environment we will always have butterflies around us. Where ever there are butterflies there is life and hope. ״
Spring time is almost upon us. We are excited to announce Gerstein's fruit bowl sale. Getting the discount is as easy as copy pasting this code at the checkout: FRUITBOWL15
Gerstein started his fascination with bowls back in the 1980's. He used to hand paint ceramic bowls as part of his search for new forms of expression. That direction has led him to create the modern metal cutout bowls - an adaptation of his main themes of interest into an artistic, yet practical artwork, which could easily serve as a fruit bowl, a stand alone art piece, or wall mounted sculpture.
Some of the benefits of these lovely Fruit Bowls:
* A perfect Fruit bowl * Manually change the angles of the bowl's edges to your liking * Optional wall mounting (screws not provided) * a wonderful stand alone sculpture * A great addition to your home * A great art gift for all occasions.

David Gerstein was in New York this week to install the Sukkah he created called ALEF-BET.
The Sukkah was created by Gerstein for the JCC Manhattan, as part of their celebrations of the Jewish Holiday Sukkot 2016. The sukkah is made out of Hebrew letters cutout in Aluminum metal and hand painted. It will remain at the JCC for the next week as Sukkot is being celebrated around the Jewish world and of course in New York as well. You can find out more about Sukkot on the JCC Manhattan website.
As the new Jewish year is approaching, David Gerstein has made this Shana Tova card to all who celebrate. From Hebrew: My best wishes to the new year, health creativity and love, David Gerstein.
We wish you all a happy new year from all of us at GersteinART. Keep following our blog and our Facebook page for all the latest news about David Gerstein's art, sculptures and more.
