  • Artist Statement

    It is said, "When the unthinkable becomes thinkable, reality becomes unbearable to the human heart". My journey into art was one of finding the ability to survive when the unacceptable became acceptable.

     

    My body of work was born out of a personal process I have been through since 2004, when I left my home and country of Israel.

     

    This work is an accumulative body of work, which took shape mainly over the past year and was used as means for self healing.

     

    It is a combination of three dimensional art and poetry to each art piece, which was written in Hebrew. It speaks deeply of different states of feeling in human consciousness and of the different core dualities in human existence.

     

    I use many different materials and recyclables, such as pieces of wood, weirs, plaster, acrylics, egg cartons, cotton, and sea shells to Hebrew Scriptures which I pick up all over the place. This versatility in materials, allows me to correlate and express the connection between the physical, the emotional, the mental and the spiritual in each state of feeling, which is being portrayed in the particular piece.

     

    With time, I have learned to listen dearly to myself and to those around me. My wish is for the viewing to remain self and attentive.
