About the artist - Biography of Michal Rotman-Laor

I was born in Israel, married and lives in Tel Aviv.
I have a Master's degree in Educational Counseling, family therapy and group facilitation.
Most of my life I painted but painting was not my main occupation until recently.
Love of color, feelings and inner thoughts formed into a new display of shapes and images thus creating a new, different experience out of the inner and deep impressions of the self. Painting for me is an emotional expression embodies a complex of experiences, visions and all that is beyond words.

Creating is an automatic, unconscious activity that comes from within me without planning or rules. the different techniques, lines, stains, texture and rhythm all create a composition which is forming itself on the surface, assuming life of its own, nurtured by the dialog between color and shape, motion and space, distance and proximity.
Creating of the work is an emotional experience of an intensive flow that constantly changes with the changing of the mood.

This is a fascinating game that provides a variegated expression to the journey to the soul, a journey which intensively and passionately ends on the canvas with a unique, personal language.
