Kibbutz, 2016

Art Kibbutz International Jewish Artist Colony is a volunteer-driven artists’ community, residency, and a hub that offers artists of all mediums, ages, backgrounds, nationalities, and affiliations opportunities to explore universal issues through a Jewish artistic lens. Art Kibbutz provides inspiring and peaceful space to work, learn and seriously explore the rich heritage of Jewish experience that informs their creative process.

Personal identity research was my motivation for participating in the Art Kibbutz Residency on Governors Island in New York accumulating into a series of watercolor portraits.
