Artist Statement

 

I am a painter and a sculptor.

My paintings are an abandoned dance in color, an antidote to the world we live in. My inspiration comes from nature, poetry, and joyful emotional experiences.                          
I begin with a clay print, transfer it onto geotextile, mount it on a board, and add mixed media. I end up with abstract mixed media 2-dimensional art.

As a sculptor I focus on issues of immigration, migration, refugees, and human rights. I come from a long lineage of Jewish nomads, including the last five consecutive generations. My people are immigrants/refugees that fled countries and continents due to physical, political, or economic survival. From my ancestors and my own experience with immigration, twice, I absorbed bits and pieces of many cultures, several languages, culinary ethnic delights, stories galore and particular humor, but also the hardships of persecutions, wars, and social injustice.

From my personal history I learned that we are One Human Race, it doesn't matter how different we are as celebrating our differences enriches us and enhances all that we have in common.


I sculpt in clay, stone, and mixed media.
