For me, painting is setting out on an adventure.

In my work, I use photos I take myself and photos found on the internet in order to examine the fine line between authentic women and the somehow detached characters posing to the watchful eye of society.

In other artworks, I explore the role of simple accessories – an imitation pearl necklace, silver shoes, or a leather coat – as status symbols.

I am interested in the impact of modern  technologies and of modern means of communication on the identity and on ‘The Social Self’ of women.

I create a sensual sense of drama and mystery by expropriating the figures and the objects from their natural context, by using sharp contrasts, endless layers of color, and the tension between my classical technique and contemporary issues.

Like the Impressionists, I take a special interest in light. In the way it bounces back from different objects. In the interaction between objects and the light that envelops them. In the special colors that are formed by these reflections of light.

I draw inspiration from isolated moments in artworks by Edward Hopper.

 

I live and paint in Tel Aviv, Israel.
