Venus of Willendorf/ maiden/unarmed/full-busomed/
sits in Barbie's house/ they are drinking tea with milk/ like two English
Colonials/well-mannered/ yet their legs are crooked/" From::Two Spoons of Sugar, Please
I encounter them in myself; the beautiful Venus, Artemis - the hunter of metaphors; Hannale in her white Sabbath dress - the naive young girl
who cannot know of her own death; the woman desperately searching for her husband-to-be among the Hermes men; the sorrowful bride,
reflecting on her life, on the eve of her wedding day; Magdalena a sinner, and at the same time a holy woman.
The exhibitions, in this web site bear the names of these women and are, in the main, bound up with and reside in the accompanying text.
Each comprises selected works of art which consist of a reconstruction of my experiences as a woman and evoke out of my inner world, that
which ties into women's experience as a whole.
It is a personal mythology, tranversing and overriding time and place, formed layer upon layer and whose main figures are women, more
women and more women.
I completed my art studies at the Museum School and Tufts University and at the Massachusetts College of Arts,Boston, Mass. USA.
In the years 1975-1982. Since my return to Israel in 1983 aside from my own art work, I teach art and art education to kindergarden teachers
at Levinsky College, Tel Aviv. Please, take the time to visit my website.
Thank you, Dina Hoffman
