Dorit Jordan Dotan
Dorit Jordan Dotan, multi-media artist, was born in Israel in 1961. In her work Dorit combines her photography with innovative digital art. Her images often express her social/political views. Through her creations, she attempts to call attention to social and cultural issues. Her recent work had dealt with her family’s journeys, from Vienna to Shanghai to Israel.
Jordan Dotan lives and works in Chicago, IL. She is a Fellow with the Jewish Art Salon, and is currently working on a group exhibition with the Artist’s Lab of Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership in Chicago. Her work has been exhibited in Israel and around the world. In recent years she has exhibited often in the Hebrew Union College Museum, in a continuing process of creating modern Jewish art.
Dorit has participated in the Jerusalem Biennale of Jewish Art in 2015 and 2016. She is currently working on curating an exhibition at the Evanston Art Center for Fall, 2017. She collects found objects in order to create new and useful items, transforming what’s been discarded into things of worth and beauty. Lately she has returned to her brushes and paints, and is working on a series of acrylics and colored pencils.
