ART Habens Art Review - Page 200

ART Habens Doria Sharra intensity and depths of emotion when in need of inspiration. David Lynch`s Twin Peaks still enthralls me so many years after the series premiered. The show was a captivating example of an independant yet communicitive artistic language, and I was intrigued by the transformations the charchters expirienced. The first painter I admired as a young teen was Klimt, and I still hold him in high regard. I feel that he is much more than the "decorator" it seems that art history at times reduces him to. Of course there are many other painters that are important to me, such as Frida Kahlo, Caravaggio and Michaelangelo. The Israel Museum in my hometown of Jerusalem holds a magnificent collection of Dada and Surrealist Art - The Vera and Arturo Schwarz Collection. It is a true tresure that I`ve had the privlage of getting lost in for hours at a time. I also have great intrest in the work of artists that push boundries, such as Linda Bengalis, Carolee Schneemann, Santiago Sierra, Maurizio Cattelan, Kara Walker, Roee Rosen, Andrea Fraser and others.
