Lea Dolinsky worked as an architect until 1981 and later began engaging with Ceramic sculpture. Years ago, she began to engage in drawing and lately with painting. The works chosen for this exhibition are her nude paintings and sculptures, which were created from different materials such as clay, charcoal, chalk, acrylic and oil. The female nude is a central theme in the artwork of Lea Dolinsky, when the focus is on the movement. Her work, mostly bas-reliefs, are creating a dialogue between painting and sculpture when the sculpture is influenced by architecture. Leah works ranges from the abstract to the figurative, and from mass into space. Her works of art are Full of sensuality and full of life and joyfulness, as the artist’s personality.
Amalia Haas began painting at the age of 11, encouraged by her parents. She began to study painting a “Thelma Yellin” school by artist Zvi Tadmor, who developed her capabilities and skills. Amalia artworks are characterized by the dialogue between abstract and figurative with a tendency toward realism. Amalia Haas frequently draw from memory landscapes and people. The works selected for this exhibition are her women’s paintings – large, full of emotion and depth portraits of women -mostly nude, and her landscape paintings – a series of powerful and bright light and color landscape paintings, creating a conflict with the intimacy of the female nude works.
Haas and Dolinsky, each, sees the image of women in a different way when Leah uses models and Amalia uses memory. Both values the female image and see it as a major, tempting issue for creation, when Leah deals with cubage and shape and Amalia shows a direct, clear, almost photographic painting.
