Painting for me is the process by which I seek Truth, and the constant challenge of finding and portraying the Truth – the Balance – in Nature.
I was taught by both Israeli and American artists, each of whom inspired me and contributed to my artistic development, all of whom urged me to always seek and build my own language, my unique artistic signature. Be determined, they all said: ‘seek your own path and a direction that fits your artistic needs; develop each concept in all directions; constantly strive to get better and be more daring because this is the only way you will find your individuality as an artist’. They were right.
Eight years ago, in a moment of insight, I packed up and headed back to Boston.
I signed up for courses and went back into the atmosphere of creating, one that was supportive and welcoming. It helped me to begin the new next phase of my journey in the art world, self-realization- and that led me to the Mixed Media art I create, which is both unique and specific.
My artwork begins with a photo I have taken. Moved by the artistic visions it inspires, I select the paper/s, soft pastels in different forms, threads, and other materials I want to include. This combination of materials coming together in one painting is my way to preserve Nature and give life – and permanence – to the memories I’m collecting.
In finding and portraying the Truth – the Balance – in Nature, my goal is to create artwork that is balanced…that “plays the music”, and the music I hear from each painting is different from all the paintings that preceded it.
In addition to the Mixed Media on my website, you will see Plein Air figurative abstract oil paintings. They are the cords that connect me to Nature and are the foundation and inspiration for my Mixed Media.
