David Rabinowitch

1943 -

For over 40 years David Rabinowitch has developed several cycles of sculptures and drawings.  For each of these cycles, he elaborates a set of considerations and properties that condition our experience of viewing them. These works are informed by architecture, science, philosophy, and music.

Self-trained, he began working in the sixties, first as a painter and then as a sculptor. An early interest in philosophy and science challenged the artist to question what we see. Rabinowitch enjoys an impressive international reputation. He has lived in New York since 1972 and works also in France and Germany.
