Leon Bronstein
Leon Bronstein has held a life of adventure and transformation that has taken him from the country of his birth in Moldavia to the land of Israel. An engineer and watchmaker by training, Bronstein's vivid and active imagination ripened and evolved as he sought freedom with his family away from the constraint of the familiar culture of his birth. Bronstein, like many seekers, discovered within himself a source of strength and creative power that would generate an artistic vocation inspired with determination to express a reach for freedom. It was the beautiful grain of olive wood at a woodshop near, the city of Caesarea that the sculptor first fashioned a small figure that had such immediate appeal to the shopkeeper that his new direction was charted. The year was 1979, Bronstein could not find a job as an engineer or watchmaker, he needed employment, he could work with tools and had moulded clay and worked with wood as a child. Discovered was an inate talent that found its bearing. Bronstein's work shares a strong affinity with the great English sculptors of this century, Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. In the semi-abstract figures of Bronstein the mass of the material is diminished as he continues the innovative idea of piercing matter to reveal the surrounding space. Nature and object interact and from an inter-connectedness. Large volumetric, elongated, and attenuated forms become one with the spatial environment in an all embracing relationship. Bronstein's figures express the flow of natural curvalinear shapes in a “neo-art nouveau” manner. Elegant feminine forms appear to move like branches on a tree or blades of grass in the wind. Bronstein numbers in today's main Israeli Artists.
