Kaya Deckelbaum is a figurative sculptor from New York, whose art is a reflection of her Bulgarian, Israeli and Canadian heritage. Kaya’s preferred medium is wire-mesh.
This medium yields to her fingers and allows her to create sculptures of faces and figures that transmit a deep imagination for the viewer’s interpretation.
Her sculptures often cast vivid shadows that add a fourth dimension to her art. One really looks at two works, the sculpture itself and a riveting image behind.
Kaya has exhibited in many galleries in North America and her work is part of the permanent collection of the Hecht Museum in Israel.
