Statement:  “I have entered this third millennium as a mostly self-taught artist. I am grateful to have collaborations with many people around the world in my own quest to develop the highest level of skill possible. In this journey, I have become convinced we think too much about the past and not enough about the future. We have big problems to solve and we need a worldview to solve them. We cannot work in isolation. To capture increasing diversity in the now and future, I like to create new finishes, like electroforming and white bronze, and work with new approaches, like fractal geometry and my own technique of sculptural montage. This allows me to blend cultures and philosophies, elements and dimensions, all in one piece or a grouping. As we create big visions, we also like to encompass important details. Our process is like closing and opening a telescope, and I hope we have a very fine and optimistic lens.” Omri Amrany.....

The Fine Art Studio of Rotblatt-Amrany is active in creating history in American Art for the last 15 years.
