Michal Rotman Laor
Mixed Media on Canvas:
Michal was born in Israel, she is married and lives in Tel Aviv. Michal has a
Master's degree in Educational Counseling, family therapy, and group
facilitation. Most of her life she painted, but painting was not her main
occupation until recently. Love of color, feelings and inner thoughts formed
into a new display of shapes and images thus creating a new, different
experience out of the inner and deep impressions of the self. Michal sees
painting as an emotional expression which embodies complex experiences,
visions and all that cannot be described using words.
For her, creating is an automatic, unconscious activity that comes from within without planning or rules. The different techniques, lines, stains, texture and rhythm all create a composition which is forming itself on the surface, creating life of its own, nurtured by the dialog between color and shape, motion and space, distance and proximity. Painting is an emotional experience of an intensive flow that constantly changes with the changing of the mood. This is a fascinating game that provides a variegated expression to the journey to the soul, a journey which intensively and passionately ends on the canvas with a unique, personal language.
Michal teaches art at the "Avni Institute of Art and Design" in Tel Aviv, Israel. The institute is known for teaching and employing many well known Israeli artists and designers.
