“beamish boy”


Ben Bergstein


beamish boy? Being a Lewis Carroll admirer (his wit and whimsey) I could conceive of no better personage to employ as a practical example of the qualities I attempt to personify in my work.

And, has thou slain the Jabberwock? / Come to my arms, my beamish boy! / O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!' / He chortled in his joy.   from "Jabberwockey" by Lewis Carroll

About The Artist

"Born into the squalor of an upper middle class family, forced to attend public school for a full 12 years, reared in the infamous Jewish ghetto of New Rochelle N.Y., honed diamond hard by the punishing suburban experience, Bergstein survived, nay flourished, overcoming these and other equally painful privations to make unique functional art pieces in a variety of woods, oil paints and other sundry materials (a testament to his indomitable spirit). He has been working with wood for 35+ years and painting in oils for even longer."

If you're looking for a distinctive piece of art furniture or a whimsical conversation piece give me a buzz, we'll talk.
