The leading line of my artwork is throughout 50 years of creativity the inspiration from inner and outer transformations in my life and the need to bridge the paradoxes of the infinite depths of Being.
My personal art began with the psychic struggles of young adulthood, which was conditioned by my family heritage of holocaust survivors. It has throughout the years transformed in style and subject, from expressive drawings and landscapes, visionary and historical paintings, meditative drawings, portraits, etc.
Drawing studies of the human body anatomy and energy structures, inspired by my yoga practice and teaching, helped me immensely to harmonize my psyche.
In the years 1994/ 2004, through a creative collaboration with a futuristic thinker from Jerusalem, dr. Hayutman, I illustrated his visions of Heavenly and Earthly Jerusalem. The resulting cycle of paintings, besides showing this ancient city from varied points of view, contain structures of sacred geometry in their composition and complex spiritual, mythical and historical metaphors in their content.
After my home in Israel burned down in a forest fire, I moved to Prague.
The renewal of my creativity began by my response to the call of this city, inspiring me with its unique beauty, history and mythology.
With painting Prague’s bridges, river, towers, temples and power places, I go on exploring the connections between the higher and lower, inner and outer, spiritual and physical realities.
My last major artwork “Heavenly Prague” is the continuation of my visionary task, in an ongoing process of synchronizing the Spirit’s intent with my creative work.
