[Shasha Dothan’s] art is based on the Idea of taking over space and totally transforming it into paintings, drawings and video art through a continuous discourse with visitors. She brings her thoughts as a young Israeli woman/artist, her fears and hopes and translates it all into art. The main themes of her artwork are stretched on the spectrum of Israeli identity between being a victim and a conqueror. Between the free spirit of Tel Aviv and the reality of wars, missiles, and suicide attacks. After almost 2 years in the USA Shasha’s art is evolving, revealing new facets of her thought and personality as she begins asking questions about the meaning of the word home, redefining identity from a distance.
