My Artist Profile
I was born 1962 in Israel. My father was born in Belgium and my mother in Denmark. I went to the Artists House during my childhood. I am married and a mother of three. All These years we have been living in Nofit, a small village in the north of Israel. I have a BA in computer science.
Most of my landscape paintings are from my Residential area and from north Italy. I use various techniques but mostly oil on canvas. I have decided several years ago that I will not try reach the reality, I am trying to put the colors and shapes as I view them, sometimes the place is the exactly the same spot but the art works are so different. The landscape I observe changes I keep in my memory and spell it out like an archive story. It is like a magnate that keeps me on this endless trail.
As my Italian curator from one of finest museums in Italy wrote about my work:
“The artist works in the field of figurative art favoring the landscape as an ideal expressive form with which to present his poetry. The style is refined and essential, the landscapes are simple and therefore very elegant, recalling the works of the Tuscan Macchiaoli both in the colors and in the treatment of the backgrounds. The gentle degradation of the Middle Eastern hills creates suspended atmospheres, the details are left out to give space to colors and their nuances. Although the reference to reality is very clear, we must consider these paintings as landscapes of memorial. We are not faced with a photograph but with an image strongly influenced by the artist's personal feelings. An image that has undergone a distortion due to the passage through the memory of the artist that is not limited only to a natural transfiguration but also to enrich with a new perspective dimension a sort of fifth dimension, the one inspired by emotional introspection. This procedure makes personal works able to reach the viewer more effectively. Pre simplifying is as if we were looking at a landscape familiar to us through the lenses of a pair of sunglasses. These lenses are nothing more than our moods that come to the surface through that typical repackage memory mechanism. Dita Jacobovitz fills the reality of poetry urges us to go beyond opening our hearts without fear and without worries.”
My painting courses were in Civita Castellena, the Hirschberg JSS Art School in Italy with Sigal Tsabari. I have been attending one of the best artists Aram Gershoni’s master class in Tel Aviv for the last 2 years. My web site can show that it is indeed an ongoing process during the last year I have a printed catalog of selected art work
Lately I was accepted to be a member of the Circle foundation. I have also received a membership in the Gold list Top contemporary Artists of today by the Art Market Magazine.
