Israeli artist Esther Naor, whose work graces Lilith’s fiction in this issue, says, “I’m interested in issues of identity, social behavior, and physical and mental borders, but I always take something very personal as a point of departure…my family’s immigration from Iraq and integration in Israel, the tension and conflicts involved in my being both a mother and an artist, and personal traumas which influenced my artistic work.” Her work is on view through January 2016 at Beit Hatfutzot, in Tel Aviv. esthernaor.com
