ARTWORK

My work with mosaics has been a formative and important part of my art for the past ten years. There are two parallel forces that drive and inspire my artistic work. First is a deep fascination with archaeology and ancient civilizations, especially in the use of symbols and hieroglyphics. I find the way the cultures build on each other, physically creating unique layers, is a rich source of inspiration. Growing up in Israel, a region with incredible archaeological depth and diversity, I was constantly exposed to and amazed by the way that different cultures gradually grew and diminished, leaving behind the physical evidence of their presences. The second source of my inspiration is the visual richness that I encounter in my everyday life.

    Evil Eye Mosaic
    $3600 $2880

    This mosaic features a motif of eyes familiar throughout religions and ethnicities in the Middle East. In Israel, where I grew up, the eye was a symbol of good luck and protection across the many local cultures. During these troubled times, in an increasingly fragmented society—both in the Middle East and in the United States—this symbol of protection and luck feels more urgent than ever. But the diversely colored eyes looking outward directly at the viewer from the piece also speak to a modern interpretation of the eye symbol: the eyes serve as a reminder to us to bear witness. They demand of the viewer that they behold the deep injustices of our society and lend us the strength and moral direction to make right what is wrong.

    Black & White
    $6000

    Pregnancy, the power of a woman’s body to create new and separate life, is profoundly inspiring to me. This mosaic, “Black and White,” represents the tension between self and other that develops between woman and baby over the course of a pregnancy. The white space, powerful and nourishing to the eye, represents the embrace of the woman’s body, whose womb, captured in the repeated motif of the cyclical rings, supports the baby’s growth and development. The black spaces represent the mysterious, still unknowable essence of the growing child, whose existence interpolates the mother’s being in countless ways, but who remains out of sight until birthed into the world.

    Brazil 2
    $6000

    My time in Brazil, a country I’ve visited countless times, has been source of great inspiration for my art. The ecology of Brazil—the almost preternatural fertility, richness, and color of the natural flora and fauna—represent my own ideals as an artist. In my work, I am inevitably chasing the unyielding growth, explosive color, and audacity of Brazil’s natural world. This series of mosaics is an ode to the beauty of Brazil and the ways in which it has shaped me as an artist.

    Burial Ground
    $6000

    A few years ago, I saw an exhibit of ancient burial art from around the world. The process of bringing memory to life through art resonated with my own use of traditional motifs in contemporary aesthetic contexts. This mosaic speaks to the capacity of art to preserve the memory of what has been faded by death, loss, or time. Though clearly dead, the skeletal figure represented in the mosaic is reunited with the breath of life through the celebratory colors, shapes, and adornments of the mosaic.

    Day of the Dead
    $6000

    This mosaic was inspired by my visit to Mexico to participate in Día de los Muertos or day of the dead celebrations. The color and richness of this tradition brings to life and honors the deceased members of the community, transfiguring their memories into beautiful art and joyful celebration. My own art seeks to use our collective memory—symbolic memory, aesthetic memory, historical memory—as a means of celebrating and reconnecting to the past in the context of our present lives.

    Earth Flower Mosaic

    The rich and varied plants in this earth-toned motif speak to the colors and patterns of the desert climates that make up much of the middle east.

Looking closely at the landscape, one begins to appreciate the stimulating shapes and colors that make up these landscapes.

    Israel

    This is a tribute to the beauty of Israel and its geographic and cultural diversity. The mountains at the bottom are contrasted with the yellow deserts, blue seas, and colorful forests. Despite this beauty, there is a foreboding to this piece; the landscape is interpolated by circles of conflict like a pox on the land. Some of the circles are startlingly red, representing the devastating bloodshed that scourges the pristine country.

    This mosaic is a representation of archeology and the history of aesthetics. In particular, I hope to capture the way that aesthetic themes layer over each other over time. Whether in architecture, fashion, or visual art, we are constantly contending with the presence of many prior eras. What we consider contemporary is really a constellation of various schools of thought from the past that are in constant conversation with each other and with the present moment. Our own aesthetic sense at any given time is really a constellation of individual moments—represented in the distinct lines—observed from our own vantage point as a whole.

    In this mosaic, the circles represent femininity, while the horizonal lines represent masculinity. The mosaic is a tribute to the diversity we can enjoy when the social regulation of gender expression and gender roles is loosened. Rather than staid and unicolored, the masculine and feminine forms take on a multitude of shapes, colors, and textures, coming together to show a society that is made stronger, more beautiful, and more dynamic by the multiple configurations that the individual figures take on.

    This piece is inspired by my children’s medical work. My son is a doctor and my daughter is a medical student. Having been a source of support on their journeys, I have come to appreciate the incredible beauty, complexity, and mystery of the biomedical sciences. The cell-like shapes in this piece represent the geometry and aesthetics of our tissues and cells, but also the tension between the deep knowledge we have of such structures, and the many mysteries that yet remain.
