Artist Profile

Based in: Los Gatos, California USA

Joyce Steinfeld is best known for her sculpture and artwork, that empowers people to connect with their best self and live an aspiring and inspirational life, with healing love and happiness.  My mature work started when I realized I could combine my spiritual interests with my artistic creations, and I started to understand the magic and power of the shapes that I made. Humans communicate in many ways, and my shape creations became a language of its own to me. I started to use words in my art and sculpture. An early project was to design a style for the Hebrew Alphabet. I taught myself the alphabet by looking at different versions of a letter, and then designing my own letter style. I also learned the spiritual meanings connected with each letter as taught in the Kabbalah tradition.  I combined letters to make word sculptures and I expanded to different languages such as Arabic, Chinese, and Sikh. I called this work “Language Art”.  I met native speakers of these languages who helped me, to make sure the artwork would be recognized for the word that it represented. Working together with these people, relationships and friendships developed. I began to feel that we are all one, but just wearing different coats that make us seem different to each other.
 Words are powerful, in the Bible, it says: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God". Everything that is created is first a word. When I abstract the human form I want to express our oneness so I show gender but not race, nationality and ethnicity.  
I have public art in the United States and Israel. I had an exhibit in Israel, that I called " The Garden of Hebrew and Arabic Letters". I created a digital book with the sculptures and a poem and translated the book from English to Hebrew and Arabic. I worked with people who helped me with the translations and I was amazed to learn that my poem could not be translated, word for word, but was changed and paraphrased by the translation. This gave me a deeper understanding of how words can make it harder for us to see our oneness and misunderstand each other. My first 3D sculpting was in bronze, but along the way I learned to use Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator which allowed me to cut with a laser my shapes from steel, stainless and aluminum, and I started to explore metal fabrication. Somewhere in this mix I also began to create art books with my sculpture, poetry and digital art. Albert Einstein said: "We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” My art and sculpture work inspired me to start the non-profit 501c3 Art and Tolerance in 2017. Our mission statement is: Art expressed in a way that promotes tolerance and peace in the diverse global communities. The conservation of the arts, in a manner that preserves our global heritages.
