Rhea Carmi

Rhea Carmi



Born in Jerusalem, a land that is spiritual and passionate; searing and volatile. These words very well describe the artist as well as her works. Rhea, over the last twenty-seven years, produced a body of work that celebrates with antiquity the everlasting human spirit, which survives the brutality, and insanity of war, aridity, and harshness of human nature as it endures.

Rhea utilizes a variety of media: oils, sand, water, treated paper, canvas, and wood; which she layers, smoothes, and sculpts to create the abstract impressions, which demand tactile as well as visual interplay. Her works are perceived as the topography of intimate landscapes, as well as the mapping of emotions and sensations devoid of familiar forms. The paintings are a personal diary of the artist as she chronicles the events that had an impact on humanity and nature.

These works combine to express the feelings of introspection, conflict, human emotion, and the effects of malicious wielding of power and greed on humanity.
