Statement

Shoshana Kertesz (b. 1979) was born in Budapest, Hungary, where she studied Fine Arts at the Montazs Art School. Her artwork is inspired by a variety of subjects. Her portrait series shows well known writers, poets  and musicians that arouse rapport and admiration in her, and a desire to express the feelings that their work and personality evokes in her. Her surrealistic “Time” series explores the relationship between man and time. Is time our friend or our enemy? How does time affect people? Is the end a new beginning? Is time linear?  Is it universal or personal? Her Biblical subjects are expressive of a deep spiritual journey through representations of Biblical characters.

Shoshana immigrated to the United States in 2010. Her paintings and photography have been exhibited in group and solo exhibitions throughout Hungary, Israel (where she lived for seven years) and the United States.
