Welcome To Sari Berkovich's Site
Hello, my name is Sari Berkovich. I am a proud sixth generation member of the famous ATIK family from Jerusalem. I was born in Israel and until my marriage I grew up in Holon, which is located close to the major city of Tel-Aviv.
in drawing and paintings came about as a result of my profession as a
practical building engineer. While planning and
supervising various grand projects, such as: hotels, hospitals and
buildings, I further developed my abilities for exact drawing
and spatial sight.
Tempera is a white pigment mixed with egg, oil, damar varnish and water. In the process of this technique the painting is covered with a very thin layer of oil color, on which the white tempera layer is placed. This process helps to reflect light. In order to receive a three-dimensional feeling, one has to work with many layers of color. During the placement of each layer one has to wait for about one week. The final result becomes evident after placing many layers of color, along with many hours of work.
use many painting techniques, such as: acrylic, oil, oil &
tempera. Sometimes I mix some of the techniques together. For
example, acrylic & oil or acrylic & charcoal. The
paintings are carried out in various sizes, beginning with 35/50 cm (14"/20")
and reaching up to 100/150 cm (40"/60").
In 1998 I
received a scholarship from the Zvulun Regional Council of Northern Israel, and consequently, I became a member of The Israeli Painters and Sculptors Association.
