While the mixed media collages are somewhat autobiographical, they are a response to social justice issues from Israel’s history to the present. The iconography includes architecture, lines depicting longitude and latitude, people and language. Biblical verses and quotes by noted historical figures are cut out of paper, suspended on pins, and placed backwards on the artwork. Abstract at first glance, the script becomes legible when viewed in a mirror.
