BERNARD APTEKAR


STATEMENT


Bernard Aptekar is best known for his imagery evolving around the ambivalent relationship between humanity and machinery.
The clear contours and colors are reminiscent of Fernand Leger latest work and what he called "the law of contrast”.
The political and social commentary that are a constant component of Aptekar's work has it's roots in the work of Mexican muralist Diego Rivera, who Apterkar met when he was eleven years old.
