Israel Hadany









Israel Hadany




In general, my works seen as emotive constructs, can be divided into sculpture with an environmental context,and sculpture viewed as an adventure and search for pure art. Although they are clearly within a contemporary framework, there is a conscious avoidance of being bound by trends, fashion or styles in the art world; an approach which permits an open, creative mobility, whose resources stimulatate a vitality, which stems from life itself but goes beyond the realm of timelessness.
