My name is Alice Cohen. I was born on November 13, 1975 in the former USSR in the Ukraine. I studied in the Rostov-on-the Don State University (Russia) at the journalistic department from which I graduated with the MA degree and in 1998 I moved to live in Jerusalem, Israel. I work as a free-lance journalist and write for the Russian newspapers in Israel and abroad and my articles deal with social problems and relations between different socio groups, with specific regard to psychology, alternative and conventional medicine, esotericism, culture and politics.I started drawing in Israel nine years ago. Being an immigrant excites a more profound perception of the world in a person. So I acquired a habit of drawing something in my notebook while thinking over the topic of writing. With time I noticed that the chaotic lines and dots turn into a plot. Their connection grows into faces, objects, creatures, planes and spaces. In the course of time such drawing turned to be part and parcel of my life.That’s the way one collection was born, then another, the third is under way. The number of pictures reached 200. My friends and acquaintances among which there are professional artists commented on my works as not only curious and unusual but performed in the spirit of the 21-st century. Others stated that it is a new trend in art, a kind of poster, a psychological view of the world. To my mind, to touch and excite people’s feelings is the main purpose of any kind of Art.The art cafe “Tahamon” hosted my two exhibitions in Jerusalem in 2007. The first one was called “Sounds and Feelings” and lasted for about two months. The second display “Death and Light” lasted about a month.I draw on the quality painting paper with colored pens. My pictures reflect the emotional world of a person, relations between people. Thoughts and feelings, energetic fields, connecting and separating us, grow visible. Sometimes the pictures look like optic puzzles and each observer can find new figures and details in the combination of lines.When a pen is in my hand I am not just drawing I am creating a plot with the unpredictable world. I never know what will become of it in advance. A line, then one more and thus their combination grows into a story. There arise faces and objects, most of which I meet in my life later.They depict mysticism, magic, fantasy – subjects very much a part of today’s consciousness-raising world. I feel that the psychology of my pictures is very suitable for these themes – adaptable to the modern design of rooms or foyers.The picture looks better if the quality of the copy is good and, if enlarged, it grows in volume. It also turned out that the computer scanning allows doing different interesting and attractive things, for example, wall pictures, art books, posters, calendars, stamps (they appear to be very impressive), postcards. T-shirts with such pictures can become popular with the young people.
