My Love Story With
Oil painting contemporary art
Thank you for visiting. You are most welcome to enjoy my contemporary oil paintings.
Beauty is a personal concept created from mental material, given over to you to choose from, in order to plant it in your environment according to your choice.
Since my childhood I play with concepts and form shapes of expression through different media. I paint the images, my mind brings up as worthy of my attention, or find expression through writing, sculpture or performance.
I grew in Israel. I was born in kibbutz Gvat, in the Izrael valley and spent my childhood in a small town dwelled in an oak tree Forrest called Tivon (meaning in Hebrew: ongoing nature) During my life I lived in different areas of Israel, in the Negev desert I lived in Sde-Boker (meaning: A Morning field), in Jerusalem (meaning: see peace)and in Tel Aviv (meaning: spring hill). Words, names and images always seemed connecting to each other symbolically. adding meaning to reality.
As I paint my contemporary oil paintings and write, I observe my visuals in my actual surrounding which becomes my main narrative, but art is a social act. So although I create it in my private meditative surrounding. I need your involvement in choosing art objects out of the variety of art object I create daily on my artistic path, and your creative act is withholding art and defining it as culture by turning those originals in to a part of your possession and environment.
