“While his character in this painting is portrayed as a noble, strong gentleman riding a horse, the emperor’s figure, in fact, is not very masculine; The horse is what makes him seem strong and noble. Unlike Van Dyck, my rider is faceless, with no identity but it does not reduce the strong impression of the rider’s nobility, created by the presence of the horse…” (Dorit Levinstein)
Dorit Levinstein’s work invites you to step into her universe of forms, figures, and colors. Her spare, 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 derive their volume from a continuous virtuosic line alluding 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 on a well-loved tune. Despite its apparent simplicity, the work is the result of a creative and sophisticated process. To master these lean and airy figures, one needs the skill and dexterity of a professional dancer who practices daily to perform the seemingly effortless pirouette. Levinstein’s work can be found in private collections worldwide and is exhibited in exclusive Fine Art galleries. Levinstein also creates commissioned works for indoor and outdoor settings and her monumental outdoor sculptures grace the landscape of many municipalities. Eden Fine Art has been Dorit Levinstein’s exclusive worldwide publisher since 1999.
