Profile

The paintings of Rya Oshpiz work as a triple dance between body, spirit and soul in search for balance. The expressionism of inner truth, created into am orphic images of her feelings, move as they wish from the earth's dimension into other dimensions that are responsible to transmute emotionally and intelligently as one. The images flow through the golden mean of geometric forms, triangles, circles and square grids. The use of Kabala, geometrics and alternate consciousness, make an access code to a different kind of intuition. The Alchemy of Color through the use of primary colors –RED, Yellow and BLUE, material into endless experiments of color that try to express life, flow , motion, circulation harmoniously with the four elements of EARTH, WATER, FIRE and AIR.
In every touch of matter, there is an attempt to bring the gist into demonstration. Landscapes, fauna flora, figurative images, become the language of dance - body, spirit and soul. This language does not consist duality .It flows in the search of inner peace and creates an inner sense of pleasantness, serenity and confidence. Before each painting, Rya enters a state of Alfa, peace and quiet. The logic mind, the heart and the emotions have to flow together in harmony. The idea is not to control the substance in art, but to let the substance flow intuitively so that creation is formed from the inner truth. In putting the spirit into matter allows the touch of love on each observer.
Being a second generation to Holocaust survivors, Rya Oshpiz chose to let go of victimization and find the meaning of happiness and life.
