Ella Almog fills our hearts with inspiration, not only because of her exceptional talent nor because of her creative, full of character and fascinating sculpturing – but mostly because she dares to live her dream!
Born in 1959, Ella immigrated to Israel from Lithuania in 1978. She worked as a part-time hospital nurse but kept sculpturing in her free time. Thirty years later, Ella decided to devote her life to sculpturing full time, when she realized that she could no longer subdue an unbridled passion for creation and for self-expression.
Ella’s art reflects a great sense of compassion that she cultivated during her many years of work at the hospital. With her precise yet compassionate fingers, which gently touched thousands of patients, Ella sculpts in a unique style, which has made her one of the world’s most prominent artists in the field of mesh sculpturing. Some people freeze when they observe Ella’s work. They are tempted to touch and feel the molded iron, amazed by the provocative quality expressed in her work – teasing contrasts of transparency versus opacity, elasticity versus rigidity, tangible shapes versus an elusive concept – sheer beauty that one must simply stare at.
The amazing thing about Ella is not just the soul-strata as reflected in her work, but her ability to listen to a person and sense his or her desire for a unique design. She can hear the hidden tremor in a voice, watch body movements and create – out of nowhere – a perfect sculpture to match the unique personality.
Other than its aesthetics and good taste, Ella’s sculptures fill the air with fanciful feelings which only fine art can impart. It is not surprising that many customers, including senior executives from all over the world, have bought Ella’s works. Her sculptures are exhibited in galleries, public spaces and in highly acclaimed exhibitions.
Ella’s sculptures express hidden passions that can be described as “invasive,” as the fine details of her work infiltrates the heart. The artist’s inner truth and the entire art of sculpturing burst like flames from her sculpturing.
