David Berkowitz’s Childhood in the Countryside
Born in 1949 in Brooklyn, New York, David Berkowitz was raised in Long Island’s countryside. His family spent their summers on a farm just outside of the city. This countryside was where David’s love of painting was formed. The endless fields, the slow pace of life and the rural nature of the landscape all served as a strong inspiration for his paintings. His father was a doctor, but he and his siblings also grew up on a large farm. This countryside was only five miles from the city, but it felt like a whole different world. The only indication that you were in New York was when you saw the tall apartment buildings and felt the city heat on your skin. To kids growing up in the country there was a lot to see, but it was also a ton of silence.

The artist believes that wild horses are a symbol of idealism and honesty. Wild horses are not kept as domestic horses are. Wild horses live their entire lives out in the open air, away from fences, barbed wire, and other man-made obstacles. They live a very pure and natural life without any pollutants or pollutants in the air. Wild horses are also untamed, still untamed. They are innocent and pure.
“These horses are not corrupted by society, corrupted by society: you will never find them in a city,” says Dudi Berkowitz Chicago.

This adds to the symbolism of the paintings. Berkowitz is not painting an object, but the object becomes alive when you look at it.
