Leah Laker Modiin Artist Statement, “Color Your World!”
“Wow-what a burst of color!” That was the comment I heard expressed over and over during my first solo show at the Heichal HaTarbut in Modi’in. It’s true! I do love colour. That’s why I especially like painting Rimonim or Pomegranates as they are known in English. I enjoy painting in watercolors because the layering of transparent colour gives such beautiful effects as you can see in the pictures directly behind me. Using complementary colors will make the subject pop. Sometimes I just like to play around with the shapes and layers of colors to see what interesting combinations will evolve.
