Iza studied painting in Russia and
Israel. While in Israel, she was fascinated by the colourful nature of the
country; this motivated her toward using livelier and brighter colors compare
to Moscow period. She successfully
participated in five exhibitions in Israel. Her works were inspired by extended
travel experiences in Europe and appreciation for the beauty of architecture of
medieval cities, winding, narrow cobblestone streets and public squares. It was
all about the spirit of a place in a cityscape, or an object in a still life.
Painting became like poetry on
canvas to her. Iza
studied in a private studio for abstract art in Tel-Aviv. This did not change her beliefs in
traditional skills, such as composition, drawing techniques and use of colors.
Iza moved to Canada in early 90’s
and continues to paint landscapes, urban scenes and still life
compositions. Iza worked as an art
instructor in Russian weekend school in Richmond.
Her paintings are in collections in
Russia, France, Israel, USA and Canada. Iza donated her artwork to Jewish
Family Services and Jewish Museum in Vancouver.
believe that art is a language that creates dialogue between people of
different cultures and traditions, brings them together to get to know and
understand each other better, so to play a special role in the struggle for
peace. I also see it as call for serenity and appreciation for beauty of
architecture as well as for magnificent power of nature.” Iza Radinsky
