About the artist
Americano-Israeli-French artist Brigitte NaHoN has received with Honors a Master I in Fine Arts at The Provence University in Aix-en-Provence (1984) and a MFA II in Fine Arts at Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne University (1985).
Born in Nice (France), Brigitte NaHoN has been living and working 7 years in Paris, 15 years in New York City and currently is established in Tel Aviv since 2008.
For 35 years, Brigitte NaHoN has been working on the concept of balance and imbalance in sculpture, in drawing and in painting with various media and experimenting with scale.
As the artist says: “My artistic approach rests on the conviction that we all bear the responsibility in experiencing the world with its unpredictable balance which let the beauty of life appears.”
By exploring the limits of life with subtle and radical oppositions, physically and mentally, Brigitte NaHoN questions fragility and solidity, heaviness and lightness, transparency, emptiness and fullness of space using an un-limited variety of materials, of forms, of lines, with or without color. Brigitte NaHoN creates a link between paradoxes of life to reach essential suspended feelings of balance, of un-limited ways to see the same sculpture using small or large dimensions of works on site-specific or not. With no restrain of materials, we recognize her poetic, magical and universal world for pursuing her quest of a perfect balance in an unbalanced world.
