Iris Design

-My name is Iris Braunstein Shemesh and I was born in Israel in 1970. I am a multicultural jewelry designer whose work shows my continuous search for new cultural inspirations. It is the wide array of colors and range of different textures and ornaments I employ from floral decorations, to angels and more that make my art truly unique. My original approach is also evident by my coupling of Classical Romantic designs with modern and contemporary fashions. The creation process involves meticulous hand-work and quality control of the highest standards.

Itzik Ben- Shalom

Itzik Ben Shalom, the man and the artist, is larger than life, an artistic Israeli with a remarkably gentle disposition. Born in Hadera, Israel in 1945, Ben Shalom has had no formal art training, but has worked closely with many artists since 1967 when he set up a foundry specializing in the 4000 year old 'Lost Wax' method of casting sculpture. Ben Shalom's sculpture refers to human emotion. Created in pairs, male and female, the sculptures are often moveable pieces. The juxtaposition expresses the essence of Ben Shalom's statement and his concern with human interaction. He says of his own work: "The twentieth century artist has to work primarily within the psyche of alienation. The overlay of modern existence which seems to be communicated more by electronic media than anything else, denies basic human emotions ? love, anger, understanding, all are reduced to cipher. I see my work as an attempt to remind people of a more primal form of humanism. In a sense, I see a need to redefine emotion". Ben Shalom was recently selected from among 2000 sculptors and artists, to create a five meter sculpture, "Lovers", for the lobby of the new Industry House of Israel in Tel Aviv. Another of his monumental works will provide the centre point of the plaza at the University Business Park in Austin, Texas. His works are to be found in museums and public places as well as corporate and private collections throughout Europe, Israel and North America. Ben Shalom and his wife Hannas, also an artist in lacework, as well as a designer of fine jewelry, live with their three children in Hadera, Israel. www.itzik-benshalom.com

S Landesman

Shraga Landesman, born in Israel, studied painting and sculpture at the Oranim College of Art, and Tel-Hai College. After extensive travel in Europe and being exposed to the origins of Western culture, he began his studies at Haifa University concentrating on small scale sculptures. Searching for new challenges, Shraga took up some courses in gold and silversmithing. He found a new way of expression in art and craftsmanship. His constant urge for expressing his artistic talent let him to design and creation of ceremonial Judaica. Shraga's spiritual inspirations are the Bible and the ancient cultures which exist in the region -the world that is disappearing. Shraga states in one of his interviews "I confront this world my way, trying to decode familiar codes from those magical objects that those cultures left behind." From the time he began the art of sculpting, Shraga always worked on small articles, attempting to express something large in small dimensions. In the process of creating small sculptures, he felt that he could identify with the tribal artists -the artisans that he knew through the magical objects they had left behind. Yet, he felt that he lacked the religious or ritual dimension that the tribal artists possessed. Shraga says: "Once I explored the realm of Judaica design and creations that were close to my roots and tradition, I felt that at last the circle is complete." Shraga's unique creations in Jewish functional and ceremonial objects put him at par with the tribal artists. Shraga Landesman's creations in functional Judaica are featured in several museums, galleries and fine craft-stores in Israel, Europe and the United States: Israel Museum - Jerusalem, Israel Tel-Aviv Museum - Tel-Aviv, Israel The Jewish Museum - Paris, France The Jewish Museum - New York City, NY The Craft Museum - New York City, NY

Marina Zlochin

Marina Zlochin metal cuts have their origins in and are developed from the world of graphics and illustration, her specialist field for many years. Metal cutting as an artistic medium has transformed illustration into three-dimensional work with volume and depth, similar to sculpture, expanding and enriching possibilities of artistic expression within the medium. Marina Zlochin prints her illustrations onto metal cuts using a lively, broad-ranging color palette, intricately decorated with spirals and unique designs. Her chosen subject matter is rich and varied, including everyday scenarios in the lives of women ג€“ caf?© meetings and the shopping culture. Her ג€œWishing Treeג€ incorporates elements from Judaism, to which she imparts a new, fresh look while still acknowledging their original function. For example, a ג€œHamsaג€ or a series of Hannukiot whose base is formed by palm tree branches, a small girl may swinging from them or a mother hanging out laundry on them, while a little boy flies a kite, birds build nests and a beautiful hoopoe alights above. Marinaג€™s works deliver a strong and direct message concisely, with harmony and colorful balance, quoting from na?‾ve and sometimes grotesque artistic techniques. They are highly professional, bright and extravagant and are filled with vitality and a positive outlook.ג€
