Americana Arcade







In the Artist's own words:

"I was born in France � 1947, to holocaust survivors from Hungary.
My work reflects my approach consciously or sub-consciously to the
subjects like gender relations, reconciliation on and separation.
Like many of my fellow artists, I was fascinated by biblical motifs.
The pattern of my life is influenced by the power, emotions and
struggle in these stories. Another source of influence is undoubtedly
the conflict of being second generation to holocaust victims.
This makes me more sensitive and more aware of the duality of life,
so that I focus on a never- ending struggle of the artist with himself
and especially with his surroundings."
