ANAT BEN EZRA I was attracted to art as a child, a desire for creation coming from the heart, a sense of satisfaction. Sculpture. This is my life in the past decade. Various techniques and various materials, concrete castings, polyester. Now I focus on casting in bronze - bronze gives the sculpture eternal life. My works are in a modern classic style and a realistic approach; through sculpture I express my inner and emotional world. My sculptures tell a story about the world and the power of a woman ... her movements ... her expressions and feelings. The fusion with nature. My uniqueness is something that I draw from a profound depth. I always sculpt the same woman's face. Various plots about one woman. In every sculpture I leave something of my life, moments of magic, coping, warmth. Dance, passion, relationships, family and power. It all begins with sketching, where my hands flow freely and lightly. Then comes the demands of the soul. And another sculpture is born Anat.benezra1@gmail.com Facebook

TAMAR ISTRIN I was born and raised in Tel Aviv, Israel. I am an artist who creates sculptures out of scenes from life. I create the sculptures in clay and then cast them in bronze. My sculptures focus on human portrait, with emphasis on facial expressions. The inspiration for my wrinkled face sculptures, I get out of my meetings with a very mature audience in my work. In my sculptures, there is an expression of respect for the human and especially for old age. My sculptures participated in solo and group exhibitions in Israel and abroad. istrint@gmail.com www.istrin.co.il

HAGIT BUCHWALTER From an early age, art has been an inseparable part of my life. I have experimented with Different creative media using a variety of techniques. A multidisciplinary artist, I paint with oils and sculpt with a variety of materials. For several years now, I have been sculpting with wire mesh and iron wire. I create figurative art that is not necessarily realistic but a product of a personal expressive interpretation which enables the image to be identified. I draw the inspiration for the work from my daily experiences and try to translate the thoughts ,encounters and people that are part of my life into sculptures that to the viewer and arouse their thoughts and emotions. info@gitushart.com www.gitushart.com

LILY DAVID "Homage to Dad" 2016 Your sculptures around the house remind you in addition to a million little things which I remember and I miss you. Tingling in fingers, the familiar feeling artists feel before they go into battle and try to transform the imagination into reality, flood me during last recent months. I usually sculpt drawings. This time I decided as a courtesy to you to paint a sculpture. "Not Alone …" 2016 The solitude of "Homage to Dad" gave birth to "Not Alone…". I felt that a lonesome sculpture was not enough and as Good created Eve from Adam's rib …"Not Alone" sculpture was born. "The Wiz" 2017 Once created, I joined the two other piers "Homage to Dad" and "Not Alone…". During the creation process, new shapes and essence were poured in my soul and I learned that I become "The Teacher". I bring a different nuance to the assembly enabling the dialog between the three. I'm called "The Wiz". I know , I exist, I'm present.

YAEL SAPIR The Main Idea - The Ornamented Leaf The main idea in my work is ‫ש‬ connection between nature, textile, and culture. It combines my own worlds - the rich landscape that surrounds me on the mountains of West Galilee, my expertise in the textile industry and textile, and my Hungarian descent. This nature-textile-culture composition isn’t a trivial one. And yet, it generates a sense of awe and enables contemplation and observation at an object - the leaf. An object that, while abundant in nature, is reincarnated by connecting it to other materials. I want to inspire and honor the time to observe. To put nature on center stage and give it our full attention, embrace it and remind ourselves that every created object is unique and has a special place on this earth. ays1110@gmail.com

FRANCOISE CHEMOUNI I was born in Paris, my first love. A central theme in my work is the essence of femininity. In my photographs of women, I focus on the mystery of shyness and eroticism which fascinates me. In making photographs of human beings I search for authenticity and what is their most natural aspect. While finalizing portraits and other photographs I use the high key and low key editing method because it enables me to express purity and the essence of femininity which I aspire to show with my pictures. As an auto-didactic photographer, I have been inspired by famous French photographers from the period 1950 until 1970 and they were instrumental in developing my vision of the photographic adventure. francoisechem@gmail.com Facebook


IFAT ZOHAR I am 47 years old Israeli photographer living and working at the Netherlands. Eight years ago I left a longtime career at the Israeli politics corridors and replaced them with the Dutch green fields. My specialty is Equine photography and my work concentrates in catching special soundless moments with horses, trying to let my audience feel the wordless moment that I have experienced while photographing this graceful animal. Although I am first of all a photographer, I try to explore and bring different artistic elements from different worlds into my photos and creating an unusual and unique vision to the world of horses. zifat70@gmail.com www.iziphotoart.com


TAMMY MIKE LAUFER My works are similar to mental puzzles, where you can travel from one point to another by analyzing a picture’s symbolic objects. There is always something for the observer to discover. I never force my vision or push my philosophical opinion on the viewers each and every one, can give theirs philosophy to my creation. My art is surreal reality, all in my head. The viewer take a journey to places just as real as those you might find in this reality. When I start working on a new scene, it's like enter to a fantasy dream. like starting your new only virtual world. “Everything is possible” and in the majority of my works I am trying to combine visual realities, with subconscious emotions and philosophical thoughts. I create my virtual world, with 3d software and 2d paint software. Using combinations of renderings, lightings, textures and shapes. The images can be printed on any material in any size.

RuTea S. NOY My art meant to bring joy, peace and tranquility to those who seek change, hope and self-improvement in a restless universe. Through beauty, color, mood, experiences, emotions, curiosity and raw imagination, each image communicates directly to the eye and makes a strong statement. Both my paintings and photographs conveys multiple, intimate stories and are consciously created in a warm, friendly, inviting style. They are sophisticated yet easy to grasp.

JOZSEF RAZ A digital artist photographer. Visual graphic design and history of art graduate. On the way from the analog world to the digital world , I went from using direct contact of the materials such as : celluloid , steel , wood , glass and canvas to the digital world where I collect all the materials for my work using the camera and the scanner . The computer's mouse is my main tool to draw and scalp my work of art . My work expresses " searching after the beauty in the ugliness and the ugliness in the beauty " and creates an illusion of the fantasy world.

GABRIELA GLEIZER I am 27 years old and based in Jerusalem, Israel. I study for a BFA degree at Bezalel - Academy of Arts & Design, in Jerusalem, finishing my last year of studies. I am interested in Portrait & Documentary Photography, social and cultural matters, always feeling intrigued by human relationships between them selfs and between their fisical enviroment. For my images I use a Mamiya C330 camera (Medium format, 6*6) and Kodak color film. About the series: "Through The Stations" is an annual project which documents people, by a journey through the different stations of The Light Train in Jerusalem, which is one of the main transportation methods in the city, passing through religious and non - religious jewish and arab neighborhoods. The project aims to explore and analyze the different cultures, religions and ethnic differences to which people belong and try to understand in this way the complexity and diversity in the society of Jerusalem, which includes Israeli- born citizens, immigrants, jewish/muslim/christian people and more. The complete series includes 85 portraits. gabigleizer@gmail.com Facebook


YNIN SHILLO I am a multidisciplinary conceptual artist. I create from the experiences of my life and from the ongoing exploration of being, preoccupied with the present and in the constant movement of life and time. The photos I chose for the magazine on "Touching Life" shows different aspects of my inspiration from the personal space (the worn-out ballet slippers of my toddler doughter) to plastic iconic theames such as Israeli spiritual scene (a Breslov Chassid prays alone in nature to G-o-d), symbolic (such as the tree trunk that emerges from grass as a lily among thorns), and abstract. www.yninshillo.com shilloart@gmail.com

MIRI ADMONI In the south of Israel, the Negev desert, you can find my home and studio of glass art and design works. Surrounded by rich and diverse nature scenes, from the Mediterranean Sea on the west to the Dead Sea and the Judean desert on the east, my work is inspired by nature’s textures and colors. My work is an ongoing exploration in different mediums, including prints, glass works and jewelry. This series is photography based, showing different scenes of nature. By digitally manipulating colors and focus, I express myself in a free spirit way, from minimal to complex, from realistic to abstract and from clear to mystery. miriadmoni54@gmail.com www.instagram.com/miriadmoni/?hl=en

EINAT SHTECKLER Whilst capturing my environmental installations with photography, my projects are meant to remind us of our individual responsibilities to pick up pieces of trash and, at the same time, stimulate and raise awareness of the impact of our rampant consumption. Whilst placing and inserting plastic bottles into unpolluted areas, often using locations that inspire me and constitute a personal interest, I create ecological statements regarding the disposal and damage of plastic waste; doing so hope to activate our self-awareness of the damage to our natural environment. "Disaster" is a startling and powerful message for the times. Through this subject matter and composition, I implore my spectators to see the impact of humanity’s intrusion in the natural world. einati125@gmail.com Facebook

Disaster


MARGALIT MOLNAR GOITEIN I specialize in journalistic photography, focusing on the moment, street photos, human faces and figures in their natural environment. Subject, colors and composition are dominant issues in my work. The photos here represent a realistic interpretation of "to touch life": the musicians and other members reflect their sheer joy of life, either by music or social encounter. By their joy they touch the essence of life. The "Chinese musician" is my painting of acrylic on canvas; the rest are my photos. margalitmg@gmail.com http://www.news1.co.il/blog/jewelmor


TAL NACHMAN I want to trace a story. One who gathers into one place all states of matter of human existence. A nonlinear narrative, where the place loses its value and the time itself is not a necessary component, but the change it generates in visual reality. My starting point comes from a need of documenting the things I own but cannot hold. In a world without a selection, I am trying to remember. I feel like every second eludes, that every moment adds in and takes away another one, and I have no control which one that will be. talats097@gmail.com

ELISHEVA NESIS My main interest is looking for signs of mysteries in our life and studying evidences of their penetrations into the real world. Almost all my paintings and books are around this theme. As well I've been trying to detect mysterious penetrations in some border individuals. So it was just natural to me to live in Jerusalem. eli7va@gmail.com Facebook OLTEN TANGO, canvas/acrylic, 40 x 60 cm

NIRIT GILAD OVADIA Since I remember myself, I love painting. During art studies, I have been exposed to various painting techniques, however, I finally remained faithful to my own technique, through which I taught painting afterwards. My painting style is realistic and implemented by multiple thin layers. My focus in details enables me to "accurately" communicate my personal experience. I truly love painting nature and landscapes, yet, the "human landscape" fascinates me in particular, since through portrait one can observe the inner human's world. I continuously look after the story behind every sight I encounter, aiming to perpetuate it through painting. niritova@gmail.com Facebook

MICHAL BIBER As a painter, my greatest fascination and strength is in looking, making everyday moments and places become magical and enticing. I see the same buildings and trees day after day, but all of a sudden I notice a something, cascading light or the movement of leaves, which I express in a colorful dance of intense brush strokes. Much like Rothko, in his Subway series, I use the tools of light and the tension between figurative painting and abstraction, to depict moments that seem banal, but actually form lively scenes of light, color, perspective and figures. My two recent bodies of work, explore the inside of my studio and my apartment, and present mysterious and alluring moments reminiscent of Film Noir. One is a series dedicated to the scenery outside my studio window, and the other is a series exploring my bathroom, de familiarizing it, and turning this room of daily grooming routines, into an enigmatic, even surreal, territory inside my own home. micbib64@gmail.com www.michalbiber.co.il

ILANA DOTAN In a world where we are flooded with emotionally and noisy images and information, we fail to recognize the banal representations of human capability: synthetic objects surrounding us, such as wrappings, plastic bags… serving us daily. We all use these objects every day, rarely stopping to consider the creativity that went into developing them, the history behind them or the accumulating impact of using them. These background objects draw my attention, especially when they acquire unique identity by being affected or acted on by outside forces. The transformed industrial, cloned object, illustrates how in some aspects, we become different and unique through external forces that wear and bend us. Describing these objects also allow a “peek behind the scene” in the human luxury and comfortable living, and the lengths to which we are willing to go to find them. I’m illustrating the hidden beauty, complexity and exclusiveness of these objects by using the simplest means. The realistic drawing allows deep exploration and appreciation of these items which seem so simple and unremarkable.

YAEL DOR PERETZ My work is influenced by a reflection of reality through media database and journalism, allowing me to examine different aspects of human behavior. This series of paintings explores the nature between man to man and humankind towards animals. The relationship allows me to deal with questions, of what is considered moral, and who has the authority to make that determination. Is this a question of inner awareness or conventional social behavior? The contrast between the exhibit and its representation, changes our perception of the object (subject) which causes a blurred reality and arouses a disturbing awareness. Awareness that reality can exceed all imagination is the source of inspiration for my work, an experience of helplessness is what provokes me to investigate the nature of this relationship and my place within. yaeldor24@gmail.com Facebook

RACHELLE GOLDREICH For as long as I can remember I’ve created some kind of art. I’m inspired by the beauty that I see in the surroundings where I live, the changing light and shadows that influence the colours and mood of the scene. I am moved by the wonder that such a scene evokes in me; the feeling of pleasure and joy or tranquility it gives me. Most of my work has been landscapes, done here in Israel and in Italy. Lately I’ve been drawn towards painting people, trying to capture the interaction between a person and the surroundings. I work mainly in oils, often Plein Air, and sometimes finished in the studio. The recent paintings with people have been done with the help of photographs I’ve taken, The magic happens when I let the almost finished work tell me what needs to be done to transform the image from a copy of something into a work which stands on it’s own merits. I’m continuously searching for ways to portray my vision with integrity without falling into the traps of method or mannerisms. My wish is to be able to create art which makes people smile, relax, perhaps even a few moments of healing. This is my motivation for what I create. rgoldreich@hotmail.com www.rachelle-goldreich-art.com

OSNAT BEN SHALOM REISMAN I'm an artist from Kibbutz Giv'at Haim Meuchad. for 30 years I was teaching, educaring and forming art in the arts institute of Giv'at Haviva. I was the treasurer of the Peace Gallery in Giv'at Haviva. I am an active artist and continuing to teach and lecture in several forms up to today. My paintings are in the technique of oil on canvas.The images in my paintings derive from the kibbutz' environment in which I live. I am bound to the place and to my home. Thus is natual for me to make the connection. The painting is based on my personal photo albums and photographs that I take with my camera. The images I used change and vary their forms like clay in the hand of the artist. Color is the starting point of me creative work. I think in color, I imagine many things through color. Color can make me very happy and just as sad. So many things happen to me through color, and it is color that leads me. osnat.bs@ghm.org.il www.osnat-benshalom.com

I hold its wings and together we flew and jumped over crises, one by another until we reached a safe seashore. In really hard times I asked him to help me choose between the life and the death and my flying piano did it and if I chose the right decision, let my life be meaningful not just for me but for as many people as possible. The flying piano became a symbol of facing difficulties and hard times Thank you, my dear friend. www.megiromeart.com megiromeart@gmail.com

ETTI AMRAM I am an artist from Kibbutz Dalia Israel. I served for 20 years as director of the Arts Center and curator of the Shalom Gallery in Givat Haviva, and throughout the years I continued to paint and sketch, my instrument for artistic expression. In recent years, the platform I have been creating has been iron. On the face of it, this is strong and durable material, but in fact rust is the weak point for me. The importance and vitality of iron in reality is the functioning of the body, as it leads oxygen to the heart and allows life. For me it is a significant means of expression, which symbolizes physical and mental strength, but it has great vulnerability and sensitivity, power and weakness are open questions for me as well. Rust stains (deliberately created) are the creation of an organic process of diffusion, diffusion and leakage. My art continues or opposes it. In my works I can see several images, deer, bird and man, who have been accompanying me over the years. "The deer of Israel on your feet is a void" is a verse from David's lament that mourns the glory of Israel and its heroes who became the victims of the war. The deer for me retreated, tired and in perpetual flight, and wanted to rest. The bird stops for a moment and descends to the earth to see if the water has been wiped off the face of the earth? I refrain from dealing with the lightness of the deer's movement or the freedom of the bird in flight, but in dealing with the existential fear and the danger that lies ahead amram.etti@gmail.com

SHAUL BAZ As a child I was fascinated with the human image and I made portrait drawings of my school friends, today as well people are the main subject in my paintings and sculptures. The canvas for me is a surface where I can create a reflection of the world in which to research the human condition. observing and painting, together with the element of research are also ritual and a space of love, of getting closer and understanding. My subjects are almost always taken from the world that is close to me or close to my heart- family members, musicians, pets and their owners, the painting are planted in artistic traditions but made with a free brush. shaulbaz@gmail.com www.shaulbaz.com

MARLEN ISMALON The figurative is a sculptural feast, especially when put on the two dimensionality of a canvas. I'm obsessed with the human figure with all its curves, angles and movements. Through this movement, I seek to express a search and a yearning for the most simple, pure and profound truth. Nature is always there too, archaic and powerful. Roots, twigs, branches, intertwining and separating, dig into the soil and back into the human form. Some years ago, I worked as a massage therapist. This experience was a great help for me since I can "feel" the body from within. I paint only from "inner" imagery. Each painting is a journey into a new unknown. marlenismalon@gmail.com Facebook Sunrise-Sunset,120X67cm, Acrylic on canvas

YONA LEVY GROSMAN I live in the Negev desert. Where the dry Loess soil raises dust most of the year. With the first rains of winter, the desert turns green.

POLINA KANEVSKY “Avoidance” is a series of drawings on A5 paper, which serves as an ongoing visual diary of an individual journey towards growth and development.

MICHAL SHELLY When I paint, I try not to plan ahead. the feeling is that the paint in my paint board ‘chooses’ me , my free hand motions . . . the brain focused on the sensations that the topic/theme awakens. sometimes the ‘topic’ remains unknown to me, the paint spots, their texture, the color, the composition or the image that emerges, clarify to me what wants to be expressed, this is a conscious process that is in dialogue with unconsciousness. michalshelly1@walla.com www.michalshellyart.com Oil on canvas, SIZE 170x100cm
