Maya Attoun

Written by Estee Balsam

Maya Attoun is a multidisciplinary artist whose works commonly comprise a wide variety of mediums. While drawing is at the heart of her work, Attoun’s installations may be compared to all-encompassing collages created with ‘cutouts’ gathered from reality as well as from her own personal world of imagery.

In her work My Heart is Full of Longing, included in the main exhibition of the Manofim Contemporary Art Festival, Jerusalem, Attoun’s pencil drawing is printed on vinyl and set on a glass window facing Jerusalem. This site-specific piece, like many others by the artist, represents a significant aspect of Attoun’s work; the request to look not only at what is displayed but also beyond it.

Attoun also recently produced a weekly planner and artist book celebrating Frankenstein’s Bicentennial.
