“Throughout the different stages of my development as a sculptor, I continued raising questions connected to painting. In fact, I never stopped being a painter.”
Dorit Levinstein’s work invites you to step into her universe of forms, figures, and colors. Her spare, elegant sculptures seem to giggle with delight as if tickled, and then stretch out with an exquisite elasticity to form their position in space. The sculptures derive their volume from a continuous virtuosic line alluding to human figures, animals, flowers, and objects.
Each of the twirling figures is painted in vivid colors, creating rhythmic patterns that regularly repeat themselves like variations on a well-loved tune. Despite its apparent simplicity, the work is the result of a creative and sophisticated process. To master these lean and airy figures, one needs the skill and dexterity of a professional dancer who practices daily to perform the seemingly effortless pirouette.
At the age of 32, she began to pursue greater movement in her work and fell in love with sculpture.
One can identify three main period in Dorit’s sculptural work to date: the “classical” bronze period, the stone and mixed media, and the current colorful linear figures.
Levinstein’s work can be found in private collections worldwide, and is exhibited in exclusive Fine Art galleries. Levinstein also creates commissioned works for indoor and outdoor settings and her monumental outdoor sculptures grace the landscape of many municipalities.
