Randy Ford Author- Neil Bernstein Artist Creating “WASHINGTONS WOODS” a Living Veterans Memorial, “THE NEW LINCOLN MEMORIAL” and “WASTE MANAGEMENT-HURRICANE SANDY DEVASTATES THE JERSEY SHORE” on Dale Thorpe’s Farm at Washington’s Crossing PA
Neil Bernstein has tremendous energy. I’ve watched him work and seen his creative energy and have been a part of it. When it takes hold of him, it is contagious, and something spectacular happens. It’s usually audacious, and sometimes outrageous. People either hate his work or love it, but he’s not easily dismissed. He is one of the most tenacious artists I know, and none I know has risk so much. He is a rare risk-taker, which makes his art relevant. Now Neil has gone home to Washington’s Crossing, Bucks County, Pennsylvania … where he has teamed up with Dale Thorpe and Thorpe Farm.
Why Thorpe Farm? Because of Neil’s connection with it. As a boy, he and friends rode motorbikes on Thorp Farm, while his father looked on. Neil uses channeling as part of his creative process, and now he is channeling on land that is not only important to him but is also important to all of us (historically important). That’s Neil. That is what he has always done. Expect something spectacular. Here is what he’s up to.
A: “WASHINGTON’S WOODS” a Living Veterans Memorial designed and rendered from a huge stand of American deciduous trees, a huge hundred-year-old evergreen, real horses, a burned-up Harley, cremation ash, crystal-glass ornaments with tiny white-lights, medals, awards, military surplus, weapons, ammo, and whatever other materials veterans bring.
B: “THE NEW LINCOLN MEMORIAL” created from a vintage Lincoln, the main “Watts” (an war-torn American flag from the Rodney King Riot in Compton, California, covered in African-American blood) and Neil’s BIG BROTHER-INSTA-FAME mobile-public recording-distribution studio.
C: “WASTE MANAGEMENT-HURRICANE SANDY DEVASTATES THE JERSEY SHORE” created from the tractor-trailer loads of authentic boardwalk, signage and amusements that Neil took with permission from SEASIDE HEIGHTS, NEW JERSEY.
