"Surviving Surviving"

Statement

As the daughter of Holocaust survivors, the underlying themes of duality, vulnerability and surviving recur in my art.  The Rwandan genocide also impacted my art and moved me to lead missions to Rwanda, to help women survivors. My current body of work, entitled “Surviving Surviving”, is concerned with the burden of all survivors, bearing unbearable memories and at times transcending them.

 

 “Surviving Surviving” is an ongoing project, seeking to open dialogues among viewers.  Included in the collection are bronze and hydrocal sculptures, oil paintings, large-scale b/w pastel drawings, and silver gelatin prints.  As an artist, I am in pursuit of expressing our environment and communicating the human condition through engaging and thought provoking work.
