QUOTES
"It is easier to express the feelings that Shoshana`s paintings evoke by music or poetry rather than words because it is not the physical that matters in her biblically-themed paintings, but rather the SPIRIT expressed especially by the eyes and the face." - Aldo Curtis, Home Gallery


"The young girl, first wandering around with her backpack was not looking for artsitic style, expression and technique, rather she was seeking her own self. She was called, so she had to leave Hungary- moved by the shadows of the Holocaust from her homeland, to search for herself- her own space and time. We can see the documentations of this search in her paintings..."- János Kobányai, author and editor of Múlt és Jövő (Past and Future) Magazine
