ABOUT

ARTIST STATEMENT

As a sculptor, I strive to capture motion and to express sensual and spiritual experiences as well as to respond to deeply disturbing violations of human rights. I aim to transform these experiences into abstract and figurative static objects. I utilize a wide range of natural and exotic wood, to combine, in a unique way, a variety of colors, patterns and textures of the natural material. I have also been working with clay and bronze.

BIO

Memy Ish-Shalom is a sculptor working primarily in wood and bronze. Born in 1960 and raised in Jerusalem, Israel, he relocated by the company he worked for, to the USA in 2002, and later emigrated and settled in Newton, Massachusetts. It was in 2013, while still pursuing a high-tech career as a CEO of a publicly traded software company, that he started sculpting in his free time. His passion to create art grew and evolved significantly. By the end of 2014, he ended a 30 years career in technology, and since then is focusing entirely on his art. In 2019 he began exhibiting his artworks.
