Artist Statement

Creating in three dimensions is a challenge that always interested Zammy. Working with raw metal, he brings life and motion to the new and recycled metal. His work does not intend to express a vision of the world, nor specific concepts. Rather they represent images that form in his imagination, which he wants to share with others. Forms connect to each other in space or in their relationship in space. Elements and their finished texture are manipulated to reflect the inner world of fertile and vital imagination

COMMENT

Zammy Migdal shows his interest for movement and volume re-inventing it. From

scraped and raw metal, exquisitely and creatively intervened, he depicts feelings and emotional instants of life. The main subject of his sculptures is life itself, with its individuality and with the events that affect the whole community.

The high standards and techniques used by Zammy make possible for the artist to create a variety of textures and visual effects, from the rusty like appearance to shinning primary vibrant colors. Zammy Migdal finds the essence of movement, undoubtedly influenced by his interest and active support of contemporary dance. As in a paradox, using the strongest materials he delicately depicts stress, equilibrium, torsions, swings or the act of stretching. The beauty of form empathized by color or texture, is represented in his series, with suggestive titles such as Tropical Tango or Broken Sails.

Migdal's art is powerful and in each one of his sculptures the viewer can perceive

the artist's love for esthetics and harmony, Zammy celebrates the best of emotion.

In our present world where the end of creative action, the ugliness and the paralysis of thoughts are tantalizing menaces, the prolific creativeness and the dynamic message of artists like Zammy Migdal fulfill us with hope and bliss.
