"Israel was the birthplace and cultural crucible where Hagit Barkai witnessed meaningful battles waged in the name of selfhood, as well as

deaf and blind walls erected to keep the Other out. A growing rift between the culture of the Diaspora and the culture of the Settlers

happening while Hagit was growing up, seared her psyche with a thirst for truth. While in college, she turned first to philosophy in search for

answers. But, writing, she discovered, favors an omniscent gaze that tends to silence the Other. Art, instead opened doors to finding an

ethical balance in her relationship with the world. Thus, since the year 2000 Hagit Barkai paints." from "The Art of Hagit Barkai: Between the Abject and the Sublime," by Surpik Angelini
