About the Artist
My name is Lilach and I have studied Art at Whitecliffe College of Art and Design. My Art is contemporary about Nature and the power of passion, which moves everything around. I am exploring the region between natural resources and the human feelings and Identity.
My art has taken many forms, from painting and mixed media to the large-scale 3D canvases Installations. My drive is nature and I source my own colours from nature, herbs and spices using sand, driftwood, turmeric, paprika, coffee beans and more!
Everything that I put in my painting has meaningful identity conceptual. Spices and herbs represent my childhood memories from mom’s kitchen as each medium has its own connotation to the human feelings.
I teach students to express themselves through art in the relation to their identity and the feeling they get of it, like I express my love to New Zealand and my belonging to this country and its nature by exploring each medium
I find painting to be the easiest and most concise form of communication and nature is a rich arena in which I explore and express emotion, intention, and challenge. Much of my work focuses on humanity and the environment and the delicate balance between the two.
In the past I exhibited in Helensville Art Centre, where I found my art suits the holistic and organic community.
