Jessica Moritz is a French-Israeli artist, recipient of the LVMH young artist award in 2006 and the Takasago prize in 2008. Her corpus of art always starts with light, its infinite evolution of colors, intangible moments of grace, and endless interactions with architecture. Moritz translates the reflections of light into matter, taking form in shapes, lines and color harmonies. Her aim is to present a new, utopic approach to art through painting on tailor-made canvases.
She seeks inspiration from Bauhaus artists and architects such as Josef Albers, who sparked her interest in color theories. She adds a contemporary twist to the modernistic style as she takes on a sustainable approach: she recycles materials found on the street, especially wood pieces, and transforms them into wall art.
