IN THE SPOTLIGHT: Gabriella Spitzer on Creation, Gender and Transition
May 20, 2013 at 1:39 pm, by Timna Burston
Gabriella Spitzer is a New-York based visual artist and member of the board of Jewish Eyes on the Arts.
In the May 19 Salon, Gabriella presented a painting based on writing having to do with Mikvah, spiritual bathing rituals, in this case created for the purpose of gender transition.
Practically leaping out of her graduation robes, Gabriella arrived straight from the ceremony with her family, and shortly after presented her piece.
Reading a poetic passage about what happened before God created the world, Gabriella spoke about the transitions in her own life, the sense of creator and creation, of art and of self.
