Lenore is a Brooklyn based visual artist. She received her BA in art from Brooklyn College and has worked as an artist, graphic designer and producer since 2009. Her work has been displayed in solo and group shows in the US, Canada and Israel.
She is primarily interested in cultural heritage and its relevance to modern life as well as exploring contemporary society's assumptions about what is considered "normal". She considers these ideas across several mediums and series which employ calligraphy, collage, photography and light.
Several recent projects engage with the culture of Jews from Muslim lands and the impact that the last 100 years has had on their legacy. The Silent Refugees and Shifting History, both exploring the personal impact of forced migration, culminated in 2017 with a feature in Homelands, a group show that Lenore produced as part of the Jerusalem Biennale, an international showcase of Jewish Contemporary art.
The common thread that runs through all of Lenore's projects is re-evaluation -- of self, society, priorities, and assumptions. She aims to continually renew her perceptions and attitudes toward the world around her, and to create work which encourages others to do the same.
