Boaz Vaadia is an internationally recognized sculptor who has been working in New York City for over 30 years. Vaadia’s work is sited in many private and public collections and museums throughout the world, such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, the Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco, and the Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Museum in Japan.
As a sculptor who grew up on a farm, Vaadia is inspired by the nature around him. He says of his work, “I work with nature as an equal partner. That’s still the strongest thing I deal with today, that primal connection of man to earth. It’s in the materials I use, the environments I make and the way I work.” His art appears as though created by natural forces, such as wind and water; they look simultaneously ancient and futuristic, as if the workmanship forms a bridge from the Stone Age to the digital age. The figure’s rounded forms are anonymous and elemental creating universality and a model of humanity to which all viewers can relate.
