Caron Tabb

Along with painting and photography, Caron Tabb incorporates found objects and unconventional materials in her conceptual mixed media and installation pieces. Born in South Africa during apartheid, raised on an Israeli farm from eight years old, and spending the past twenty years in the United States, Tabb uses these biographical elements and a devotion to social justice in her artistic practice. “My [works] address issues of social inequality, racial justice, and feminism as seen through the lens of my deep Jewish identity,” she says. “When I question my role as a Jewish, white woman, and a human being today, I know that in part it is to raise the level of discourse, increase empathy and engage people in difficult conversations about a just and equal society. I feel a burning passion to use my privilege and address what it means to be an American in this day and age.”
