Fortunee Szpiro
Fortunee Szpiro was born in Lebanon and grew up in a Jewish
neighborhood in Beirut. After the Six Day War in 1967, her family
immigrated to Israel. Sculpting in stone has always been Szpiro's
passion. For many years, she pursued it as a hobby. Lately, it has
became her full-time profession. Szpiro's sculptures combine many
aspects of her personality: sensuality, intuition, softness, rudeness,
spontaneity and technical abilities. The result is a piece of art that
contains many of these contradictory fascinating elements.

    Glen Shear
    Glen Shear’s paintings depict classic artistic themes, with an emphasis
    on our quest for meaning and inspiration. Each canvas is constructed
    as a sort of puzzle, divided by distinct contour lines which often recall
    traditional vitrage works. Images are sometimes hidden and require
    discovery. The brightly colored compositions reflect a unique visual
    language, inspired by Expressionism, Graphic and Pop art.
