Zule

Read more about the artist Zule

Memories can often be more vivid than the realities that inspired them. Evocative, heartfelt remembrances, especially those from childhood, burn deeply in most peoples souls – and even more deeply in that of an artist.

Zule’s feet (or should we say brushes) are firmly rooted in Buenos Aires, Argentina from 1925 through the 1930’s. The energy, romance, excitement of life in “Caminito,” the artist’s quarter is evident in each of her works. Café society took hold of Caminito and Zule captures that Laissez-faire attitude with her flowing pastels and bold paintings.

Using only her thumbs as tools to create the pastels, Zule makes rich color slashes as individual gestures that when taken as a whole, form an ever pleasing panorama. Women always dominate the works, with men playing a supporting, albeit, chivalric role. Horse drawn carriages and gas lit lampposts evoke a time that Zule will never let die.

Trained and schooled in Argentina, Zule’s dream of becoming an established and successful artist has come true. In 1962, she realized another dream, and moved her entire family across the world to the land of Israel where she still lives today.
