About

Smadar Livne, an Israeli born artist, is currently living and creating in Owings Mills, Maryland. An award winning artist, she is recognized as one of today’s leading Judaica artists. Educated at Haifa University, Livne has degrees in art, literature, and architecture. She has continued her education of philosophy through Baltimore Hebrew University. Portraying scenes from her life and learning is what gives her work an edge. Livne’s works are vibrant and exciting, and express the joy that Livne sees in life. Not only are the works beautiful, but subtle messages are also painted into each piece, and require time for observation and reflection. Technique sets Livne apart from the rest. Using bold, bright colors and wide strokes, she adds other items in a layering technique. The eye catching result contains layers of paint, fabric, wool and other materials objects, and meaning. Following in the manner of Calman Shemi and before him Kopel Gurwin, Itche Mambush and Georges Goldstein she has created magnificent abstract Judaica celebrations of Israel. These are collaged felt soft tapestries not Tapsserie Aubusson Gobelin style but more textured and with depth, not woven. Smadar displays her work all over the world. Her art hangs in many private homes as well as Jewish centers, Synagogues, and other places.
