In my sculpted canvas paintings, I investigate the role of tradition in modern society, based on my experience working with Israeli immigrant youth and elderly from diverse backgrounds. These works depict the dialogue between tradition and modernity as expressed in dance and clothing. The way in which the painted patterns adapt to the sculpted surface of the canvas parallels the interaction between contemporary society and traditional culture, whereby traditions shift in order to adapt to a modern context.
