Born 1954, Haifa ISRAEL

Lives and works in Ramat Hasharon.

Studied Interior Design and Furniture at the NB Haifa School of Design.

Worked many years as an Interior Designer.

For some years now I learn and draw in the studio of the artist Ronit Agasi.

 

I draw and construct collages (Ready Made) from used tea bags, on which I work in a mixed technic (Mixed Media) combining Embroidery, Painting and Sketching. This is my way of bringing to life old materials, corresponding with ancient Kraft world and Feminine Technics, using the language of the Great Mother, the Wild woman, converting them into the contemporary world, the actual, the live and kicking . . .

 

As a daughter to Holocaust survivors, my work with tea bags started from the number tattooed on my mother’s hand, being an Auschwitz survivor. The look of her aging arm skin triggered me on a quest for a platform with texture and coloring to be as close as possible to the look of the aging skin, and enabled me to touch and to unravel the “Conspiracy of Silence”.
