Israeli artist Rinat "Tavalina" Kishony was born in Haifa, Israel in 1966. She graduated from the Israel Institute of Technology in 1992 with a Bachelor of Architecture. After a personal crisis in her 30th year, she began to paint. Rinat abandoned architecture and devoted herself to her art.
“I love the power of color, and my creative process alternates between different contrasts – spontaneous vs. exact work, cold vs. warm colors, fast vs. slow, opaque vs. transparent, and a constructive vs. destructive process.
Gradually, I search for a new balance, a new order.
The paintings are constructed in layers, in a constant movement of exploration on the edge of a cliff.
I try to find in me the consent to get lost, to meet the unknown, to destroy - then appears discovery and surprise, and the finished paintings are vivid and full of energy.”
