About the Exhibition
For the last thirty years I have been living and creating art in Israel. My work is influenced by the challenges of being at the same time; an American, observant Jew, and an Israeli kibbutz member. These different parts of my identity are a major factor influencing my art. Many of my works give the impression of one firmly planted in the moment and place-yet the feeling of being on the outside looking inward seems to pervade the art as well. While speaking specifically to my experience I feel the works communicate with people of all backgrounds regardless of religion or nationality. The works presented cover a large variety of subject matter such as; gender, religion, politics, ritual and community. The various mediums I use are: body art, video, sculpture, painting, drawing and photographs of my performance based pieces.
