Growing up in Israel, Sagit Bar-or witnessed the impact of war on her friends and neighbors. Many had nightmares, and they were fearful and sleepless. She, too, was frightened, especially during the Second Lebanon War in 2006, when she and her family were forced to seek shelter during the 34-day military conflict. For nearly a year afterwards, Bar-or, a professional artist, lost her desire to create art. When she returned to her work, she started creating images that reflected the soldiers’ emotional experience of war. This work doesn’t lose it relevance. “I am from a country that is always at war,” she says.
