ARTIST STATEMENT

 

Decades after leaving my country, I still carry one of the deepest features of Romanian philosophy: the fatalistic approach to life, "dominated by nostalgia for nature" as described by Mircea Eliade. Ironically, escaping from Romania to Israel gave me the opposite take on existence: physical survival became a daily assignment. The belief that one can rebuild from ashes of destruction and death was a distinct reality.

My wide world perception is the result of these antagonistic philosophies, undoubtedly reflected in my art. I find it stimulating to balance my creative process between painting and sculpting.

Wanderers have imaginary roots; their home is a timeless realm, a mythical stretch between estranged and familiar. Like for all folks in exile, the narrative is paramount as, ultimately, it is the only thing one can gather in an instant and run. My art reflects the breath and immediacy of this journey.
