Shulamit Near: "I draw from observation. Looking at the world is looking at life itself - everything moves, breathes, changes. For the past twenty years I have been painting still life, landscapes, and people. In my paintings I examine multiple compositions and the different possibilities color combinations create. All my paintings come from the reality that surrounds me".
Shulamit is a graduate of the Art Department at Bezalel, and her works have been exhibited in dozens of galleriess and collections in Israel and around the world.
