SIMCHA EVEN-CHEN The series of artworks “Folding in Motion” focusing on investigating the relationship between “free” three-dimensional space and two-dimensional graphic deigned surfaces, giving visual meaning without restricting the movements. Utilizing porcelain property to collapse, enables achieving organic and amorphic forms. There is no searching for thinness, fragility, transparency and whiteness of the porcelain. My artworks are dealing with questions of new inter-space (void image) created by the collapse, motion, color, patterns and fluidity. The graphic pattern adds a new dimension to the folding, giving impression of softness forcing the eye to flow the folding. My sculptures are autonomous objects that stand independent of narrative or objectification. As autonomous objects, they lead the viewer to follow his imagination and feelings for their meaning. evenchen@actcom.co.il www.simcha-evenchen.com

JAFFA MEIR The materials I use in my works are not of the refined and so am called an “arte povere” artist. I use simple and available ready made materials in an obsessive and exhaustive manner. At times I describes my work as someone dealing in alchemy - work develops as in a trial laboratory with different techniques and materials. I say: “ At times the artistic work process is a sort of puzzle demanding the filling in of all the empty squares “. Techniques: ZIPS-PVC-FORMICA-HOT GLUE-RECYCLED PAINT-MIXED MEDIA art@jaffameir.co.il art@jaffameir.co.il

SILVIA ZIMERMAN In my art I like to capture the beauty of the glass. Different techniques allow me to express different ideas. I am interested in creating works that call the audience to be excited and touched. The play of light and color, the complexity of the material and the challenge involved in creating something soft and caressing from a material so sharp and cold as glass, enchanted me. My inner and surrounding world are express in my work. Yet I find it important to let the glass speak for itself and display its powerful presence. Is always a story to tell, and I choose glass to be my speaker. Most of my work are about fabric. My father was a tailor, he passed away very young. For me , creating things connected with my childhood around my father is a way to keep him with me. glassart@silvia-zimerman.com www.silvia-zimerman.com

VERONICA ELLRAN Every Woman Had a Name Rape 1 & 2 My emotional experience stands at the center of my art on all levels. I always invite the public to a real and meaningful dialogue about the content that the work brings up. Although the created objects express an inner world, I, at the same time, seek to cross the boundaries of the personal and subjective into the non-personal and objective. The works presented deal with the phenomenon of gender violence. It is not a statistical or sociological approach. I present the subject from a different angle. The work consists of two parts: one seeks to associate with the memory of women murdered and the other deals with the rape experience. Every Woman Had a Name 103 names written in 103 stones In remembrance of the women killed because they were women. 103 stones are stored in a bag made from the top of a pantyhose. In each stone is written the name of a woman killed because of her gender. 103 women were killed in Israel between the years 2014 and 2020. veronica@ellran.com www.veronicametalart.co.il

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 www.ben-ezra.co.il/gallery

RUTH SCHREIBER I am a multi-disciplinary artist, living and working in Jerusalem, Israel. My subjects tend to relate to life cycle issues: being a woman, childbirth, ageing and death, along with heritage and memory. I work in a variety of media: I paint and draw, create sculptures and installation art, and practice photography and video art. I studied Ceramic & Glass Design (MFA course) at Bezalel Academy of Art and Museum Studies (MA) at Leicester University. I also hold a Diploma from the University of London in the History of Art. I volunteer in all departments as a guide at the Israel Museum, Jerusalem (www.imj,org.il). I have exhibited in numerous group and solo shows in Israel, N. America and Europe and my works are held in public and private collections. Ruth@Schreibers.com www.ruthschreiber.com

DANIELLA WEXLER I am a multidisciplinary artist. live and work in Jerusalem. I am between other things a recycling artist. These works were done many years ago by Melting plastic bottles after putting in them colors, now I took pictures that I had from them enlarged details and want to print them in big sizes in different materials. I am amazed by the colors and forms that come out of them, it is a new way of recycling my recycled art... daniella.wexler@gmail.com www.daniellawexler.com

OPHIRA SPITZ My art includes painting, drawing, sculpture and installation. It is influenced by various aspects such as nature, the environment and topography. One can identify in the works different forms related to the fields of botany and cartography. The drawings, for example, have repetitious forms, like an embroidery pattern that spreads and expands, while its general look brings up the association of an organic organ, a climbing plant or a fossil. In the stone sculptures series the surface is covered with shredded geographic maps, and their amorphous form alludes internal organs. Through my art I aim to merge and combine various worlds, and my technique, respectively, is varied and extends from laborious crafts to free and automatic acts. The actions of experiment and play, dismantling and assembling, create a new body that seeks to undermine reality and raise questions on its significance and feasibility. ophira.spitz@gmail.com www.ophiras.com

KAREN NAIM My inspiration to create is generated by a need to express and create a bridge between my inner and outer world through the use of materials. In 2014, I decided to leave the “rat race� for a while and find space and time to dedicate only to my art. With this goal in mind I flew to Goa India to fulfill my dream. In Goa, I have founded the 'GoART Open Studio' which was a lovely Gallery and working space for me and for worldwide artists. At GoART, I was working intensively on developing my Art. In my art, I am interested in the daily life details, wanting to change their essence into something totally different. As portrayed in this series of photographs, The 'main' issue of the objects is missing leaving us with the empty skin full of its' new self, standing independently as a whole. I see my art as a journey in service to society. I would like to emphasize the value of all aspects of creativity and encourage the fulfillment of our, wider potential in this life.

OLGA VAYSHBEIN I am an artist and illustrator. Dreams, fantasies and fears, that are reflected in shadows, is the main subject in my artworks. In working with the Monotype technique, I believe I am in interaction with the Universe. As I always begin my monotypes as an abstract, random stroke of ink on paper. Then gradually turn it into something animated and meaningful, in response to my current state of mind and mood. Usually, I am completely in charge of the working process, yet sometimes my work takes the lead. On the other hand, my works are somewhat interactive - sort of shadow game, in which every viewer could apply their own imagination and give their own interpretation to the subject matter of the work. Just like in Rorschach test, every person will see and process the work differently. My works are more than black and white pictures; I see them as transfiguration of the subconscious, paradigm of emotional states, profundity of the sublime. olymagic@gmail.com www.olymagic.com

ADI OZ-ARI The human body and the machine have always worked their magic on me. What fascinates me is the link between bodily processes and illnesses and processes that take place in machines and materials. I seek out the interfaces: when I succeed in discovering these points, I am very moved. Often, processes in illnesses become encoded in a new aesthetic language communicating with other universes. My work conducts a dialogue with traditional photography, poetry, painting, and bodywork, as it strives to clarify the essence of imprinting the image. Photography is my experimental laboratory for the deconstruction and reconstruction of images. My sources are varied; among them are Xrays, books, newspapers and road maps. The images seduce me, acting like a secret I want to decode. In my latest works, the materials constitute a significant element in the process, sometimes dictating a new, unique language by their nature. adi.oz.ari@gmail.com www.adiozari.com

SAGIT BISKER-ROM Reflecting on what to draw or sculpt - it's deciding what to be and what I am. In this process, my self-awareness rose greatly. The feeling of evolving and flowing between the different materials with different expression options, personal choice, free and deep choice. These empower me to translate my ability for strength and inner courage to move forward. The works are all abstract and emotional with a strong presence of body organs. The threads as an image for the tissue that completes missing parts. As if to sew the missing landscape. The scars of time from the event that left me aphasia and right half of my body paralyzed are healing and I find myself successfully coping with speech rehab, new habits, using my healthy left torso. Investigating power and mental strength versus body weakness became for me an open daily questioning for setting goals and achieving success. www.sagitbiskerrom.com kaveketem@gmail.com

MICHAL KIMCHI Painting accompanies me my entire life. A new painting is an adventure, and, just like a good book, I expect to enjoy the journey, to be surprised every step of the way and to not know how it will end. The process is slow and meticulous. The subjects are universal and free of prejudice. I like the graphic precision, and occasionally use the thinnest brush on the largest canvas. I’ve studied and taught the history of the arts, and especially love the naïve art style - as my paintings proudly show. Nevertheless, I am not naive at all… To which art branch do I belong? it is for the observer to judge. mi13957@gmail.com

ELISHEVA NESIS "I make art for brainy people. 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 www.saatchiart.com/elishevanesis

ETTI CHECHOVER I am a graduate of the Bezalel Academy of Arts, and have been in the arts since 1978. I have exhibited many exhibitions in Israel and in the Netherlands My paintings are about people: I paint portraits, but what interests me most is the expression. I often paint "unfinished" paintings (non finito), but the expression is also evident in these parts. I am very interested in the history of art, and this is evident in my paintings. The topic of "mother-child" is also of great concern to me, and I have been dealing with this series for several years. mannic01@gmail.com FB 2020 oil on wood 14x12 cm

MA’AYAN KOSSOFF When I paint the female, I search for the underlying aspects that help define her, looking for what lies beneath; her inner power, vulnerability, sensuality. I wait for that moment when she is not ‘posing’, finding that particular expression or thought that says to me, ‘this is who she is right now’. For me, it feels biographical, as if I am capturing a moment of time in her life. In abstraction, my work becomes more autobiographical as each of my series begins with a shock, an event in my life that is transformative. Large in scale, I invite the viewer into the visual universe of the painting. With impulsive applications of vibrant color, bold, energetic brushstrokes and varied opacity, the dialogue between me and the oil paint begins creating an environment where movement, depth and mystery is revealed, and a sensory experience occurs. My approach is a necessary way of depicting a transcendent reality, whereby the painting and viewer fuse together, creating a spiritual intimacy. studio@ma-ayan.com www.ma-ayan.com

LUCY ELKIVITY The roots of my work are inner voices teeming with life, abstract forms, biomorphic creatures. My fascination lies in Nature. The materialized creatures are very physical, but I wish for them to own certain emotional traits, and eventually become emotionally open ended, capable of endless change. I wish them to communicate and stimulate the viewer. I like the calligraphic expression of using ink and the use of water is crucial for me for breathing sensation. Even if there a single drop of ink, that is for me like a homeopathic medicine. The ink is there. I wish to paint: What comes out of our mouth, what the skin transmits, the gap between the two, what is swallowed, what is gone. elkivity@gmail.com www.lucy-elkivity.com

HILA MIZRACHI My images are fragments of experiences , thoughts, and passes situations. They are pieces of life. There is no specific time or place in the photos. Most of the situations are not touchable, and some of them are kind of fantasy, memory or flashback. They are direct expression of my feelings and my soul. www.Hilam.carbonmade.com mizrachi.hila3@gmail.com

MAYA HADASH In the last few months I have revisited my personal archive of photos from the last 7 years, and searched for common language between time and observation. I have managed to find a connection between things that have excited me over the years. Honestly simple: We are surrounded by grandiose, sparkly, eye-pecking, complex, and exciting worlds. Most of our lives we are in a crazy pursuit after money, fame, never missing out! Always be present!! But every now and then it’s important to take a step back, take a deep breath, take a look at the little things, get purely excited, embrace simplicity and know how to enjoy it just like that. Honestly simple. mayanew87@gmail.com FB

LIOR REZIEL Art is my port; from its shores I embark on journeys; to art I return. Art is my path and the instrument whereby I can connect and recount the story of the terrain I have visited, in a manner that transcends the limitations of language and culture. Through my work as an artist, I make contact with color, as an expression of the unplumbed regions, seemingly forgotten from thought, but not from the heart. In my works of art, my creations, I seek to uncover these regions whose memories continue to resound in the heart of the observer. www.liorreizel.com liorreizel@gmail.com

REVITAL KALAY Every time I drive from the city where I live to Tel Aviv, I pass through the forest and "drag" some nature to the studio, that is located in the heart of the city. In my work I combine sections of life, dreams, family photos - old and new, into a new narrative. The characters surrounding by nature, usually forest. The artwork is done by observing different images and connecting them within the painting. I choose the subjects that interest me intuitively and explore them visually through the creation process, While preserving the initial stages in the finished work. The collage work makes it possible to re-examine different elements and subjects, through their connections. I paint mostly oil paintings, My works are characterized by expressive brushwork and vivid colors but at the same time are peaceful and harmonious. I love to blend colors and find the right palette for each work. revitalkalay@gmail.com www.revitalkalay.com/

DEBBIE KAMPEL I am a landscape painter. The draw of the rugged Judean hills, the sensuality of the dipping curves of the valleys and the ever changing shades of color, have always intrigued my senses. In my newer series, trucks, traffic, and views of human habitation at night have broadened the scope of my interest and views of the ancient land have given way to the human landscape. Vibrancy, tension, and emotional scenes of everyday life have captured my attention. My paintings reflect the underlying energy and pulse of life, which is an undercurrent ever present in my volatile, passionate country. kampel@zahav.net.il www.debbiekampel.com Cowboy Truck, oil on linen, 110x100cm

TOVIT HORN My artistic initiative is driven by love for the activity. I explore the artistic process, from my inner and outer world, as a person who goes through processes, through life experiences. My perception of art is related to healing, both personal and collective. I explore through simple forms, concepts, and images. I am influenced by the field of "social sculpture". A term coined by Joseph Beuys, an artist who inspires me. The sculpture in Kfar Uriah belongs to this field. The essence of the sculpture is not the result, but the connection to the people that follow the process over the last 10 months. I create sculptures, paintings, drawings, and poetry. The topics in sculpture lead me to the choice of materials. It’s challenging for me to experiment with new materials. When drawing, the process is intuitive, I work with the shapes and colors, examining their relationship, movement, and interaction between the object and its environment. tovitza@gmail.com www.tovithorn.com

LIDA SHARET MASSAD In the series “Majama,” (large Persian copper trays), I used images from my parents’ cultural world to focus the gaze on statements embodying contemporary significance, critical thought, gender and the borderlines of East-West communication. My desire to rebel against tradition is coupled with great empathy. I love to observe ready-mades that cross my path, stimulating a process of deconstruction and reassembly in the studio. I combine materials that are traditionally perceived as “masculine” with a practice considered “feminine craft,” as I tie, crochet, and embroider with metal wires. lidams@gmail.com www.lidasharetmassad.com

OSNAT OLIVA I'm a creative person. Growing up, I realized that creativity is the central quality of my personality and that it is expressed in my unique way of thinking and in the way I'm looking at the world. Few years ago I was exposed to the magic of the painting world at Israel Hershberg's school. I learned there the painting language - abstract observation; Spots and lines, tones and edges. Since then I’m walking in a fascinating journey that involves; Fabric folds that create nameless shapes; Elegant outline of sculpted goddess; Dried petals that froze in time; The world is full of pictorial motifs, and as an artist, I must refine my senses, identify and hunt them in my own special way. osnatsheiner@gmail.com WEB

RUTI SINGER Black ink seeps through the fibers of the delicate, fragile Xuen paper on which I paint. For years I have been exploring these materials and how they interact with Western artistic practices, regardless of whether I am painting cows, structures, landscapes or people. Often, my practice is to arrest moments, frequently from moving pictures, and to distill, fragment and defamiliarize them, examining collective consciousness, sociopolitical issues and relationships between people and between humanity and nature. “Newsreels” is the most austere of my series, originating in the black and white “documentary” newsreels from the 1930-40s in Israel. I freeze a frame and rendering it in shades of ink, examining what was considered “newsworthy” (or appropriate propaganda?). I am particularly interested in how women were depicted, what roles they were assigned through the media, and how it translates to today, reflecting back onto current society in Israel. ruti.singer@gmail.com www.rutisingerart.com

CHERYL VEINER For many years my professional artwork centered on figurative ink drawings, the most popular of which was a line of whimsical musicians prints and notecards sold across the USA. Then, at some point I had a real desire to paint spaces with color and movement and after a lot of experimenting I found that waterscapes offered me this experience. Being a native of Minnesota, “Land of 10,000 Lakes”, I was well acquainted with lake scenes. After moving to Israel I found the additional opportunity of seascapes. For me, oil on canvas is best for this subject matter , however I also enjoy painting a variety of subject matter and also work in soft pastel and watercolor. Cherylveiner@gmail.com WEB

ROSE BAR-NUR As an infant, I was spellbound by the unique sound the pencil makes when it came into contact with paper. When I was four years old, inspired by the pictures of fairy tales that covered the preschool walls, I decided that when I grew up, I would draw all the fairy tales. So began my love story with the world of painting, with countless pencil sketches. I grew older, the topics changed, but my passion for drawing never diminished. At the age of fourteen I picked up a brush and have never laid it down. Today I work in oils, in a realistic style. My topics are taken from life with hints of symbolism. In my paintings I observe the complexity of gender, old age, poverty, existence and death. The dynamics between Jews and Arabs can also be found among my subjects. My paintings freeze real-life situations that conceal questions. For the last two years I have devoted all my time to painting. I dove into the world of art with the purpose of creating, and expanding my expressive range. rosebarnur@gmail.com www.instagram.com/rose_barnur

TOVA ELDAD In my works there is an ongoing dialogue between wild nature and the human nature, between it’s inner and outer expressions, represented by images from the natural world. Flowers, trees, birds, hyenas and more. The works seem to be searching for some fragile and delicate balance between the different images and the space. Sometimes it is harmonious, sometimes threatening, sometimes vulnerable, A balance point of order and chaos. Human nature is expressed through the animal figures, representing the inner world of experiences, as it relates to place, time, and the timeless. The images are photographs and image processing from my artist books. tovaeldad@gmail.com www.tovaeldad.com

MARGALIT PRIMO My work focuses on re-birth and new creation; which is a focal point in my life, With the excitement of creating personal combinations, unexpected sights, the impossible, composed on a clean, smooth platform. I immerse again, in sensuality, in spots and in stripes, This creates a work that moves, visually artistically and emotionally. My work has a personal, complex, direct and intuitive sequence of techniques, photographic pieces (collage), pencil drawing, oil pastell, soft pastels, acrylic and other materials. Like "delving" into the light of my soul where bits of life, images and understandings are mixed. The small sites, the sensual shapes, sometimes also in sexual forms ... The drawing, the lines and the flow between them, as they merge together, create "my own artistic language". I aspire to move the viewer and enlighten while viewing my works. I seek to excite the viewer and cause a sense of elation as much as I do. margprim@gmail.com FB

TIKVA GOREN Since I can remember myself, I was drawn to art and especially loved to paint my childhood landscape, Jezreel Valley. For years I've been painting daily and explore the meaning of what it is to paint and the different painting materials (mostly coal and oil paint). My current work evolved from continues learning through out the years. On one hand I'm very tied to traditional art, but on the other hand I'm loosening by deconstructing and reconstructing and looking for freedom, movement and expression. tikva-goren@hotmail.com WEB

NITZA LIVAY My first connection to Art began when I was around 10 years old. I have found somewhere coal residues and started to use it for drawing galloping horses on paper as well as on my parents’ balcony walls. I studied art in 3 art institutes: The Plastic Art Institute (Bat Yam, Israel), Avni Art Institute (Tel Aviv, Israel) and the Art Teacher’s College (Beit Berl, Israel). I have presented my art works since 1984 in group and single exhibitions. My last single exhibition took place at the Tel Aviv Artists House (name: “The white paper sees me”. Curator – Bilu Blich). nitza.livay@gmail.com Web

SABINA SCHKOLNIK SAAD Multimedia and conceptual artist These are difficult times that we are now coping with. The Corona virus found me, as with everyone, unprepared. Yet as with other challenging times in my past, my creativity was triggered. Closed up at home, there was no lack of time, though materials were lacking. So I began with a small drawing on paper using ink and pencils. Soon I found myself in an artistic conversation with the virus. In each drawing I tried to draw it’s portrait and from drawing to drawing it’s personality revealed itself along with it’s influence on our lives. This artwork really “infected” me with Corona. Technique: ink and colored pencils on paper. sabinasaad@gmail.com www.sabinasaad.wixsite.com/artgallery
