My work takes abstract shapes and forms that bear the traces of the human hand. Using temporal materials such as wax, paint, and emulsions, narratives emerge from both the absences and presences found in my pieces.
Loss, transformation, and a raw sense of aliveness are common themes in my work. As a consequence of my parents’ devastating Holocaust experiences, I grew up in a world of many questions that do not have answers, of faces in family photos that I would never meet. This sense of erasure has given me the urgency to give voice to my family’s stories and to express the unspoken historical, political, and that which is unconsciously felt.
I work spontaneously using both the natural world and my inner states as guides. My creative process allows me to connect to a limitless, free interior world. In all of its forms, my work comes from a place of renewal.
