The Architecture of Israel – Featuring Chaya Greenwald
Exhibit Dates: May 2 – June 14, 2024
Artist Reception: TBA
Artist Statement: My main inspiration comes from beautiful photos of Israel, the Old City streets of Yerushalayim and anything that gives me an “Oh my gosh I need to make that into a painting” type of photo. I am a child of a Holocaust survivor. Seeing images of the old-time shtetl and days of simple Jewish life really bring out strong feelings and I want to get those feelings on a canvas to share with others.
Often artists create artwork based on trends and styles of the time, or they have one specific style of painting. I don’t have a ‘set’ style that defines me, which I think is unique in a sense that I can create so many different pieces and different styles of paintings. One feature I would definitely say you will find in each of my pieces is lots of vibrant colors, some with gold or silver leaf as well. More at fineartbychaya.com.
