Pamela Levy


1949 - 2004


Born in Iowa to a protestant family. While studying art at Northern Iowa University she met an Israeli psychologist and art critic, married him and came to live in Israel. The marriage did not last long, but Levy decided to settle in Jerusalem. She became one the first artists in Israel to deal with feminist issues in a brave and stubborn attempt to express her fears and the hardships of being a single parent, an artist and a woman.
The colourful surface and seemingly naïve themes (children, couples on the beach, cute animals etc) of her paintings and woodcuts do not hide the disturbing, provocative undertone that lurks in the background.
She died suddenly, at the age of 55.
Pamela Levy's works were exhibited in Golconda Fine Art in 2001, 2003, and in 2006.
