About the Artist
Sara Benninga (b.1982, Israel) is a contemporary painter focusing on the human figure and narrative. In her work Benninga constructs paintings dealing with subjects of femininity, sexuality, experience, and psychological tension, also which refer to the history of art and culture. While relating to the past, these contemporary narratives evade a definitive meaning, thus enticing the viewer to tell his or her own story. This is a reflexive action – which is metaphoric of painting itself: an art that reflects what you see. Viewing is interpretation. Sara lives and works in Jerusalem, Israel.
