My journey begins with the body which I use as a mediator between "one" and the "world". As I explore the mysteries of my inner self, the trauma sphere plays just as much of a role as the divine one. As a matter of fact, drawing from my own experience with trauma and resilience, I see them as valuable stepping stones to evolve. In order to demonstrate this acute importance I invented "BODY =The New Religion", an artwork in which my own body, the intricately connected structure which holds the infinite aspects of the self, serves as the main theme. As this project expanded, "knowing thyself" was no longer just the central theme of my work, but now became a tool to collect the pieces together. Since then I have been using the word, "Shlema", which is the word for "wholeness" in Hebrew, to sign my works.
