Paintings by Gilah Yelin Hirsch
"I began to feel myself as an embodiment of nature. I lived in an altered state. My psyche shrank and swelled as I trespassed from nature to culture and back from culture to nature."
Gilah Hirsch's artistic breadth spans an entire range of disciplines: art, architecture, theology, philosophy, psychology and even psychoneuroimmunology. She is respected worldwide for the variety and comprehensiveness of her work.
Inspired by her lengthy solitary sojourns into nature, Hirsch manifests her impressions and reflections in a variety of media, combining painting, writing, photography and video into a common discourse on the depth and immensity of the natural world.
