Aviva Uri

August 18, 2010

Safed, Israel, 1927 – Tel Aviv, Israel, 1989
I was attracted immediately to the pure line— drawing! The line was I.” – Aviva Uri”

One of the first Israeli female artists, Aviva Uri overcame great odds and emerged as a leading and influential figure in Israeli art. Uri never studied art formally but studied under the artist David Hendler whom she later married. His linear, flowing stroke profoundly influenced her work but she moved away from his figurative depictions toward the abstract. Line and movement is the subject of Uri´s work, which draw out the simple beauty of ink on paper.
