Dov Lederberg

Short Biography

Dov Lederberg grew up in the Philadelphia area (Central HS 211) and began his involvement in the arts at Haverford College
and the Columbia University Graduate School of Fine Arts, concentrating on the experimental film and became an active film-
maker within The New American Underground. One of his works, entitled "Eargogh", an interpretation of the life of Vincent
Van Gogh starring Jack Smith and Marie Menken, was widely screened at the time. In the late Sixties Dov studied in yeshivas
in NYC and Israel. Between 1970 and 1994 he worked as an independent film director, mainly for Israel Television, making documentary and educational films. Since 1983 Dov has been deeply involved in using new art mediums and techniques to
express the subtle ideas of Jewish mystical teachings and meditation and has created many original acrylic paintings and
video art compositions inspired by the Hebrew letters in the scribal style.
His current work is involved with kabbalah mandalas and visual paradigms for dialogue , triptychs and wax congealings
withinthe abstract illusionist genre, essentially creating an evocative "gestalt' which invites the viewer's active interaction
and interpretation. His paintings and video art are exhibited in museums and galleries in the United States and Israel. 
Dov, a recent widower from his wife, the artist, Yael Avi-Yonah, lives in Tzfat and Jerusalem,  but makes frequent trips
abroad for exhibitions and lectures.

Dov Lederberg  
                     Artist's Manifesto
I am engaged in the converging vectors of art and science, but receive added inspiration from
kabbalah teachings & meditation and try to create visual forms (in paintings on canvas but also
video art) conducive to mystical experience and self-transformation.




Various curators have termed my work as abstract illusionist or mystical abstract expressionist.
I like to regard myself as an "emerging" artist creating art with many layers and meanings that
 "emerge" before the viewer, an evocative gestalt that invites the viewer's interaction and discovery. This effect is enhanced by viewing the work with avatar-type 3-D glasses
(which of course is difficult to achieve in this web context)
or turning the painting on its different sides.
