<div>As an artist who was born and raised in Israel, my work is shaped by conflicts &ndash;political, emotional, social, private, and gender-related. I often turn to my alter-ego, for the inner freedom necessary to create; My alter-ego acts as an anchor that helps me frame my concept, providing me with feedback from within and creating new conflicts that become the material for my art; most importantly, my alter-ego helps me constitute an inner, invariably rich relationship - with my own &ldquo;other&rdquo; side.</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>My art employs a variety of media: from sketching and oil painting on large canvases to sculpture, video art and installation on a large scale. In my sculptures I seek to address various issues relevant to relationships and self-sustenance.</div>
