As a Canadian/Israeli artist, my art is an interior dialogue shaped by opposed
poles. I explore oppositions through the use of universal themes such as
memory and conflict. I intentionally depict oppositions to express duality
such as empty verses full, darkness against lightness, pain opposing
pleasure, life holding death.
