Light Within the Shadow

Light Within the Shadow

A Painter's Memoir
Pnina Granirer

A lively and moving memoir that chronicles Pnina Granirer's life as an artist, wife and mother. Conceived as a play in three acts, it begins in her hometown in Romania, moves to its second act in Israel, and concludes with her life in North America. It encompasses her years in Israel, the USA, France and Canada, and her travels to Japan, Spain and Mexico, all of which inform her understanding of the world which is then reflected in her art.

In this compelling memoir, Granirer shares her successes and failures, addressing issues of dislocation, 'otherness' and the uprooted soul's wish for permanency. With determination and resilience, amidst the joys and restrictions of family life, Granirer created a large body of art, ignoring trends and searching for renewal.

She became an internationally respected artist whose profound work is an enduring expression of the search for beauty and spirituality. Her works are found in museum collections in Canada, Spain, Chile and Israel.

Light Within the Shadows gives an inside view of how art is forged and released into the world. Granirer's work has been featured in two other books: Her own Trials of Eve (Gaea Press) and Portrait of an Artist by Ted Lindberg (Ronsdale Press).
