Jewish Family Life in Crown Heights and Elsewhere

April 19, 2011 - June 25, 2011
Central Library, Youth Wing
Oil paintings by Esther Pam Zibell

This body of work deals mainly with different aspects of Jewish life in Crown Heights, with an expressionism and imagination that show an insider view. Other prints and monotypes in the exhibition describe more universal subjects.

My biggest aim was always to stay as far as possible from the influence of others and develop my own style. For that reason, I refused to go to any art school in order to keep the very personal feelings and freshness I had within.
