“Throughout the different stages of my development as a sculptor, I continued raising questions connected to painting. In fact, I never stopped being a painter.”
Dorit Levinstein’s work invites you to step into her universe of forms, figures, and colors. Her graceful, elegant sculptures seem to giggle with delight as if tickled, and then stretch out with an exquisite elasticity to form their position in space. The sculptures’ continuous virtuosic line alludes to human figures, animals, flowers, and objects.
Each of the twirling figures is painted in vivid colors, creating rhythmic patterns that regularly repeat themselves like variations of a well-loved tune. Despite its apparent simplicity, the work is the result of a creative and sophisticated process. To master the art of creating these delicate and airy figures, one needs the skill and dexterity of a professional dancer who practices daily to perform seemingly effortless pirouettes.
At the age of 32, Dorit began to expand her work and fell in love with sculpture.
One can identify three main periods in Dorit’s sculptural work to date: the “classical” bronze period, stone and mixed media, and, currently, the art of colorful linear figures.
Levinstein’s work can be found in private collections around the world, and exhibited in fine art galleries. Levinstein also creates commissioned works for indoor and outdoor settings. Her monumental outdoor sculptures grace the landscape of many municipalities.
