Artist's Statement

My work is a tension of opposites, like a pull on a rubber band. And most of us live somewhere in the middle…

Bio/Resume

I was five years old when my family and I fled my birthplace of Baghdad, Iraq, and immigrated to Israel via Iran. It was in Tel-Aviv where I spent my adolescence and graduated from the Institute of Fine Arts in 1970. Following a solo exhibition as a young artist, the America Israel Cultural Foundation awarded me a scholarship to study abroad. I arrived in California and enrolled in California College of Art in Oakland and San Francisco State University. After graduating and receiving my MFA, I set off for the East Coast and have been living and working in SoHo, New York City since 1975. My multi-layered cultural background and experience inspires my art through the years.
