Tavalina:
Windows Beyond

October 1 - November 10, 2022

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, and later moved to Tel Aviv, where she worked for several years. During this time she won a competition to re-design the multimedia museum dedicated to the former Israeli Prime Minister, Ben Gurion. After a personal crisis in her 30th year, she began to paint. Rinat abandoned architecture and devoted herself to her art.

At the same time, she embarked on a thrilling journey of personal discovery. She left Israel and set off, traveling the world โ€“ from India to Costa Rica to Guatemala to Italy. After ten years abroad, Rinat returned to Israel with her family, where she continues painting and presenting her work, as well as teaching art.

Our house can be a place where we can feel lonely, removed from the bustling life outside, alone with our memories, and engulfed by the fear of missing out.

It can also be a house where we withdraw to regain our strength, find comfort, find peace, enjoy simple pleasures and rediscover ourselves.
