Sculpture | Mixed Media
Zahava Sherez was born in Argentina, grew up in Israel and currently maintains studios in California and Mexico. She is fluent in English, Spanish and Hebrew. She is multi-cultural therefore is influenced both by many traditions and by immigrants’ struggles.
She is a painter and a sculptor. She focuses on seeing beyond the obvious, beyond the outer form/meaning, diving into the inner essence in all.
With her sculptures she focuses on what she has learned - 'we are all one' - therefore our outer layer is but an illusion creating unnatural divisions, struggles and wars. Her series “InBodied Light”, in resin, bronze, mixed media and light, emphasizes this fact.
With her paintings she celebrates the richness of these cultures based on personal experience, and on stories and poems read or heard. The vibrant colors, depth, and movement in her series “Painted Poems” reflect that.
