Caron Tabb was born in apartheid South Africa, raised on a farm in Israel from the age of eight, and has lived in the US for the last twenty years. Her conceptual mixed-media and installation pieces address issues of social inequality, racial justice and feminism as seen through the lens of her deep Jewish identity and her personal history as an immigrant. Through her practice, she seeks out materials rife with metaphor such as Jewish ritualistic objects, fencing materials, and repurposed garments, then transforms them with paint, cement, fire, and text with the goal of sparking dialogue, increasing empathy, and engaging people in difficult conversations. The resulting artworks are deeply personal reflections that serve as a voice and a vehicle for conversations about what it means to be an American today.
