Alicia Kamien Kazhdan about her work:
I am a multidisciplinary artist and neuroscience student at New York University.
Born and raised in Jerusalem, and now based in NYC, my artistic expression is shaped by spirituality, the chaotic urban environment, as well as its kaleidoscopic inhabitants.
I have had the privilege of showcasing my paintings in galleries such as the Gallatin Gallery, Barbur Gallery and the HaMiffal artist collective in Jerusalem.
Driven by a profound fascination with the visual dispositions that underlie aesthetic perception, I delve into the neural pathways involved in how we experience art.
As both an artist and a neuroscience student, my journey revolves around unraveling the mysteries of aesthetic perception and understanding how our visual dispositions shape our interpretation of art.
Through my work, I strive to bridge the realms of art and cognition, enriching our understanding of the intricate workings of the mind and igniting new possibilities in artistic exploration.
