Pandemic, The Light Therein

(June 2020)

The current situation might have compelled us to stay in, but might have also made us shift our focus from the outside to the inside as well. This is a time to get back in touch with ourselves and understand that everything we’re searching for is already within us. We just have to start taking responsibility for our lives. As Gandhi said “Be the change you wish to see in the world”. I believe that in challenging times we should do our best to quiet the mind and listen to our inner voice. The idea behind my sculptures is to inspire a change within, of awareness to the present moment, therefore my themes are often meditation and yoga that both have a spiritual core.

I'm a sculptor from Israel and have been living in Vancouver with the love of my life since 2015. Art was always an important part of my life. Even as a child, you could have never seen me without a piece of material in my hands, trying to give it a life of its own. Somehow when choosing a major in college, I chose industrial design over art. During 3 years of studies I was lucky enough to gain great friends, knowledge about tools and techniques, though I didn't get to be an industrial designer. Eventually, I figured out this path wasn't quite right for me. Sometimes we take a wrong turn, only to get to the right place. Sculpting feels like home to me.
