My main source of inspiration is my immediate environment. The images in much of my work are of street trees located in cities in which I have lived – New York and Jerusalem. I am drawn to the vulnerability of the trees in urban environments, which I interpret as a metaphor for my own experience of life in the city. My prints depict trees in their entirety and in details, focusing on cuts, textures, and unusual viewpoints. Often the trees keep on growing despite physical injury, manifesting the idea that, albeit loss, “life goes on”.
I work mainly in printmaking, a medium which I find ever so challenging as it inherently has an element of surprise. I especially enjoy working in Intaglio for its tactile qualities, and its focus on drawing as the main means for creating images.
My work deals with personal history, and how it becomes part of the physical being of an individual. How, in a way, one’s history is “mapped” unto one’s own body. My work also relates to my own history: for me, exploring the shapes of street trees is a way of mapping my own experiences.
