Originally from Kishinev, Moldova, Semion has established himself as a major upcoming artist in contemporary sculpture. Bronze sculpture is imbued with monumental presence through a well and cohesive style. The expression of humanity and the human from is beautifully expressed. Skillfully executed, the sculpture exhibits a strong sense of physical permanence and spiritual poignancy.
Semion Rabinkov, who hails from Israel, contributes elongated, fractured tabletop bronzes of couples and families. Twisting and sawing space, he sculpts the dynamic flexibility of human dynamics. He also siphons the spirit of Modigliani's elastic bodies and Chagall's floating circuses.
THE MORNING CALL, February 9, 2006
“Certaines sculptures provoquent en nous une admiration tout simplement, d’autres-sourire ou encore étonnement. Chez Semion c’est tout à fait diffèrent. C’est une sculpture qui reflète notre vie quotidienne avec toutes ces facettes de joie et de mélancolie, de tendresse et de force, de nostalgie et d’enthousiasme. Chacun de nous avec un peu plus de coeur et un peu plus âme se reconnaît dans son oeuvre.

“I have been acquainted with Semion Rabinkov’s work for many years.
I also came to know his technical abilities and creative process as well during the time we worked together as he helped me create my monumental sculptures. In my opinion, Semion belongs to a limited group of modern sculptors who have a solid classical background. By taking an active part in all the stages of creating a sculpture, he also has the practical experience of a craftsman. It is the combination of knowledge with skill permits him such total freedom of creativity. The sculpture of Semion, no matter how much he deforms the human body and no matter how far he deviates from classical constructional proportions, always has a professional core. This is what differs Semion from laymen who only know how to imitate modern plastic art.
Semion’s sculptures are full of expression and freedom. His deformations are tense and meaningful, and not in the least chaotic. This gives us every right to say that we deal with mature artist.”

The mixed media by Irina Ruth, oil, and watercolors are imbued with a dense surface plane of color and texture fusing figurative and abstract elements. The color is woven into a complex network of structured compositions from which figuration emerges to reveal subtle and mysterious forms.
