Ronit Keret Publishes a New Art Book – Tears
The artist's work is characterized by expressivity and a search for spiritual expression
Ronit Keret’s work addresses the question: What will remain when “what is” disappears? “What is” means life as we know it on planet Earth: nature, with its resources and landscapes, with its fragility and the danger of extinction hovering over it. “What is” also includes art: its sources, and how it can respond to and reflect the relationship between nature and human beings.
The course that Keret has charted from the outset, and which has gained momentum in recent years, focuses on the ecological crisis – the melting icebergs and changes in nature caused by human activity. In parallel, she has conducted a dialogue with the history of art and with the artistic experience, on a path that encompasses painting, sculpture, and installations, from the figurative image to the abstract, and from immediate everyday experience to broad existential contemplation of the human condition.
Keret’s work is characterized by expressivity and a search for spiritual expression, alongside a deep look at environmental events. Whether through recurrent dreams, journeys to far-off places or the study of contemporary scientific research, Keret channels our most fundamental fears and desires into artistic work that changes the viewer’s space and requires us to think about our place in the world.
