FORWARD Review by Jordana Horn http://www.forward.com/articles/117864/

Some of the exhibit’s explorations of the body are more poignant than others, and more overtly Jewish as well. Lisa Deloria Weinblatt’s (LABA) sketch, “Her Body,” on the second floor of the exhibit, is a drawing of a female figure whose back is covered in Hebrew text and imagery, a second layer of a sensually textual skin.
“ By creating the juxtaposition of the female body image with sacred text, I seek to overlay the body with a multi-layered map, melding text and human form into one another,” Weinblatt writes in the exhibit’s catalog. And indeed, the woman’s back vaguely resembles the topography of the land of Israel, with a shoulder blade as the Golan sliding down into the Gaza of the left hip. This is territory of beauty rather than controversy, quoting the Song of Songs: “Behold, you are beautiful, my love; behold you are beautiful…your hair is like a flock of goats, sliding down from Mount Gilead.” Weinblatt’s sources render her sketch rich with meaning as well as beauty.

ARTIST'S STATEMENT
I am a figurative painter whose imagery is informed through personal experience, Imagination and direct observation. The paintings comprising both series, A MAN / A WOMAN & SCHOOL LUNCH, present images concerning the nature of relationships between men and women. My goal is to create humanistic awareness in a framework which is
universally recognized.

The SCHOOL LUNCH series is a pictorial essay of contemporary student life, in real educational settings. Contemporary cross-cultural issues and their emotional attitudes are explored in the shared experience of school lunch. SCHOOL LUNCH is generated from direct observation, drawing on location in NYC High Schools and Colleges. SCHOOL LUNCH underlines perceptions which affirm cultural identity, brings together ideas espousing contemporary concerns and encourages a belief in the quality of the
human spirit.

I use the vocabulary of daily life and historical reference to inform the content of the A MAN / A WOMAN series. The images in these paintings investigate the interactions of interpersonal relationships within a time-frame. This series, in creating awareness of the multi-faceted roles of women, recognizes and views the importance of relationship cycles.
Within this series, balanced real and abstract elements coexist, to create images which allude to the myths of womanhood. The MAN/ WOMAN series, distinguished by evocative motifs, are activated by current issues and concerns of women, which challenge the uneasy boundaries of possession, substance, perception and hallucination.
