Lives and Works: Jerusalem
Adva Goldstone was born in Jerusalem, Israel and she is a graduate of the Fine Arts department, Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem, Israel.
Adva’s main focus is painting. Her figures undergo a process of abstraction. They become forms upon great surfaces of color. They become models.
Adva’s works continue a tradition of flattening in painting and resistance to create a three-dimensional space on a two-dimensional surface. She empties her figures from all content, leaving them with their external shape and then capturing the viewer through their grotesque gaze from every angle.
