“Matisse Dancers” by Dorit Levinstein, part of her "Studying the Masters" collection, is an original hand-painted bronze sculpture inspired by Henri Matisse's depiction of five female figures dancing ecstatically in a circle. In her interpretation, Levinstein brings to life the primitive art influence and the emotional hedonism that Matisse portrayed, emphasizing the liberation of the body and soul from cultural and social conventions. Levinstein's sculpture uses vibrant colors and dynamic lines to capture the essence of Matisse's flat, schematic figures and their closed, circular formation. The choice of bronze adds a classic dimension, while the hand-painting infuses the work with contemporary energy and personal significance. Levinstein's focus on the connection and friendship between the characters aligns with her own values, making "Matisse Dancers" not just a homage to Matisse but also a reflection of her belief in the power of friendship and happiness. This sculpture invites viewers into Levinstein's artistic universe, where forms, figures, and colors merge to create a deeply expressive and meaningful work.
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 Gallery has been Dorit Levinstein’s exclusive worldwide publisher since 1999.
