An intimate Israel through painting

The artist desires to teach by example and demonstrate what can be achieved if one is willing to venture beyond the limitations of scope or habits of mind.

I am about to embark on a journey in writing about an artist with whom I have shared the past 20 years. I have known the painter, Igor Mojzes, as his wife, best friend and colleague. If one’s life is a work of art in the making, then living with an artist certainly makes one that much more aware of this fact. Since our life together began, not a day has passed without my being immersed in thoughts about art, its functions and those of the artist within society as a whole.

Igor’s art is a record of human honesty. In the pursuit of excellence, of mastery, the painter seeks to perfect, purify, polish and reveal the essence of the subject he paints.
