Zehava Masser's work is about the soil and the land.
She is fascinated by the permanence of the soil, the
impermanence of the objects she finds therein, and the
materials she uses. With her keen eye and soul she finds
inspiration wherever she goes. The rocks, the sands of
desert and sea, the trees she has planted, and those
she wants to plant but fears will be uprooted, all are
painted tenderly and lovingly. Although abstract, her
paintings are easy for us to comprehend as we recognize
in them both their and our ancient origins. An uncompromising
professional, she has a delicate touch and an extraordinary
sense of composition. Her paintings are subtle designs with
compelling combinations of textures and colors. Masser is a
mature, confident, and consistent artist. Her work has a
strong, comforting presence; often it feels like an abstraction
of ancient Japanese art translated into contemporary language.
She lures us into it with a whisper.
