Orit Shneider, an Israeli artist, who creates diverse art:
"Naturally, I am connected to the beauty that surrounds us – to the creation,
to the views and the nature. In my art work, I examine the reality, observe the
shape, texture and color and create as I disassemble and reassemble it.
I use different materials and techniques, as long as they serve the idea and the
design. In my creation I use colors and other materials such as rocks, branches,
pieces of wood, copper, fabrics and glass. As a person who was born and lives
in Israel, in a conflicted society that is in a continuous struggle for our existence
as a country, I respond and share my opinion through my creation as I wish
for order, peace and harmony".
The Chairman of The Israel Painters & Sculptors Association, Dr. Zvika Israel
wrote about Orit in 1998:
"Orit belongs to a younger group in our community of artists, she is completely
cohesive and mature, that is well reflected in her modern creation and speaks
for itself. As a post-modern artist, her ambition and direction is differen from
the approach of the classic and realistic artists. Orit is a creator, who doesn’t
stop looking for new paths, examines visual study and work; has a different
perception of space and yet stays ethical and moral as she wishes to
“fix the world” and hopes for better reality".
