Michal Avrech Artist Statement
I create imaginative landscapes with fast, expressive brush strokes without careful planning, as if I’m painting in the consciousness of a dream. Intense colors express my energetic character. Painting on large canvases, I convey a sense of space and freedom, hope, joy, and vitality while reflecting my inner world. The landscapes purposefully set a general, generic tone through which a viewer can find his own personal landscapes.
More recently I have started painting abstract and completely imaginary images which deal with questions about the creation of the world. The abstract also deals with longing for my beloved family and friends through new themes--childishness, illustration, and wellbeing.
I am an award-winning international artist based in Israel. I have participated in many exhibitions throughout Israel, Europe, and the USA.
