Sarit Lichtenstein

Paintings


Why art, you may ask?

Well, because it is the artistic creativity that protects me from this pitiless world, by allowing me to give expression to my innermost feelings.
Art is sensitive and honest, transparent and incredibly beautiful – artistic creativity is the highest form of expression that the human being can aspire to.



Biography

Sarit Lichtenstein was born (in 1961) and grew up in Mexico City. In her youth she was deeply influenced by the paintings of David Alfaro Siqueiros and Frida Kahlo, as well as being very impressed by European and American paintings specifically the work of Jackson Pollock. Her education and training as a painter and sculptor spanned reputable institutes across three different continents: Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes, Mexico City, Istituto Europeo di Design, Rome, Italy and Bezalel Art Academy, Jerusalem, Israel.

Sarit Lichtenstein’s œuvre has a strong appeal to the senses and the emotional input in her work emerges as the dominating characteristic of her artistic creativity. Colour, in all its facets and nuances is foremost in Sarit Lichtenstein’s work. In her paintings she succeeds in endowing individual colours with a personality or characteristics. Colours allow her to express her emotions, clearly pointing to the influence of action painting. Sarit Lichtenstein’s colours and shapes seem almost to dance on the canvas or paper.

As an artist, she is never intimidating; on the contrary, her focus is placed clearly on the sensitivity of observance. In dealing with the subject ‘language’, she makes liberal use of metaphors. She has devoted a whole series of etchings and paintings to language, to the word and the line. She uses the course of the line, accentuated by individual colour areas, as the main element of her vocabulary.

In Sarit Lichtenstein’s work, life experience and artistic knowledge blend effectively and purposefully. For Sarit Lichtenstein there is no dividing line between artistic creativity and the transmission of the artistic content of statements.

Numerous international individual and group exhibitions have added to her reputation as an artist. In 1989 she received the prize of the Japan Design Foundation, Osaka. In 2009 she produced the series ‘Circle of Independence’. She participated in 2nd Biennale Internazionale D’Arte Contemporanea Sabbioneta in 2010 and in the VIII Biennale of Contemporary Art in Florence in 2011. For many years her work has been acquired by art collectors around the world.
