About the Artist

Meir Raz’s work favors abstraction; his unconventional methods of applying paint to canvas, using tools such as pieces of wood or unused mechanical tools, create multi-textured works that depict the nonrepresentational.

Inspired by both the urban and the natural landscape of his hometown, Haifa, Raz paints from memory and feeling; applying color that is expressive, bold, and creates compositions that are based on his interpretations of life events and personal stories, allowing the viewer to absorb the emotional energy exuding from the canvas.

Reception: Thursday, May 16, 2019 6-8 PM
