French-Israeli artist, lives and works in Tel Aviv.

Graduated from the fine arts of Paris (ENSBA),LVMH young artist award 2006, TAKASAGO prize 2008. 

She believes that order in chaos leads to an equilibrium of harmony. Moritz’s corpus of art is an infinite voyage. Her calling never discovers a termination. On a diurnal degree, Moritz is compelled to confront herself personally with the transcendence of light.  

Light is an exceptional commodity for her, it's something which she adores and desires but also causes agony to her. Enduring the torment she creates with her art objects a utopian architecture (mindscape) where she unveils an unfeasible geometry. Her objects are portals to a dissimilar sphere where the mind absconded and is confronted with a clear result of a never materializing entity of art. The inevitable consequence is a painted geometry that provides balance and an optical euphony in a very intelligible manner. 

Her art is inspired by former Bauhaus artists like Josef Albers. Moritz lives in Tel Aviv, where the traces of this movement are still to be found in the city architecture. Albers inspired Moritz to consider herself profound with the theory of color. Her inquiry led to an inspirational mission to flourish a very own attitude to this optical material. 

Moritz believes in a sustainable way of producing her art. In consideration of climate change, she reclaims materials to use the existing. She gathers material on her trips and transforms them during a magical process into a new purpose. She tries to avoid a replacement out of senseless consumerism.
