Colorful, minimalist  still-life paintings created with a palette knife, which leaves a distinctive texture.  Incisions and scrapings, along with pencil and oil pastel marks, trace the creation of the work over time. Light and shadow are key elements in these abstracted scenes of everyday life.  Working over multiple sessions result in traces of previous versions and iterations which allow the viewer to engage in the work on multiple levels.

As a native of Israel, Dganit grew up in a Kibbutz. She moved with her husband to the US in 1992. After years of creating art as a self-taught artist, she became a full time student at UNC Chapel Hill. Moving to Philadelphia, she earned her BFA with honors from the University of The Arts, and MFA from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Art. Currently, she is working in her studio at the Crane Old School in Philadelphia.
In her work she is pulling from her reservoir of life experiences, memories, intuitive processes, and curiosity to construct a “place”, an environment – a landscape. Within it, she aims to present an idea composed of multiple layers, which focuses not only on the physical “being” of land, but also on land as a source of emotional and psychological mood.
