This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from Dov Raviv, on behalf of Ilana Raviv:

Ilana Raviv was born in Tel-Aviv, Israel in 1945. She holds dual Israeli/American nationality. She has painted since childhood. Her work has been influenced by, amongst others, French/Jewish Painter Haim Soutine. In the formative years of her career, she worked closely with the late Arieh Lubin (Israeli Painter).

In 1980 she moved to New York.

Between 1980-1984 she studied at the Art Students League. Amongst her teachers were: Roberto Delamonica, Bruce Dorfman, and Knox Martin, who was a primary influence and her mentor for many years. This resulted not only in a true friendship but manifested itself in the cooperation between Knox Martin and Ilana Raviv on the project:

Sukkat Shalom (Tabernacle of Peace)
This mural was installed for the largest Sukkah (Tabernacle) event in the world, which marked the beginning of the celebration of Israel's 40th anniversary in New York City. It was sponsored by the Jewish Community Relations Council and Mr. Andrew Stein, President of the City Council of New York City. This mural, which was painted in collaboration with the New York artist Knox Martin, focused on 40 years of friendship between New York and Israel and their efforts in eradicating the problem of world hunger. The Sukkah was installed on East 14th St. It measured 80 feet by 60 feet and was capable of holding 1000 people.

Ilana Raviv is an accomplished Israeli-American artist who has exhibited her works in the United States, Europe and the Middle East in various galleries and museums. Her works are woven into rhymes and tied up in a geometry of poetic expression, which a handful of artists refer to as "Synthetic Realism". The "Magna Mater" exhibit was a vibrant reflection on women of mythology, history and literature. The paintings in this exhibition included Leda and the Swan, Cleopatra, Alice in Wonderland, The Pieta, Sheherazade, Eve and Other Sisters of Womanhood. Raviv draws from many different cultural traditions to highlight the inner strength that women throughout history and literature share.

"Never before have Europa and Leda, Flora, Helen, Pandora, Shehrezade, Alice and Lady Godiva been portrayed this way: in a haze of colors and expressive forms that exhibit their relations with their spouses or the way they see themselves from within"
Dr. Alec Mishory
Art Critic & Art Historian
Israel

"The sublime essence of the Magna Mater is the source of feminine manifestations The paintings of Ilana Raviv are true, tempestuous outbursts of creative force, generating powerful images which express the creative unrest surrounding the lyrical, intimate and the effervescent temperament of Ilana Raviv's artistry - a genuine song of praise to intuitive art..."
Branka Berberijan
Art Critic
Spain

Seeds of Peace (was proud to announce its cooperation with artist Ilana Raviv on a unique exhibition of Raviv's new work: "Magna Mater", (the Great Mother). Since 1993, the non-profit organization Seeds of Peace, has brought together 1500 Arab and Israeli teenagers from the Middle-East to its summer conflict resolution program in Maine. Selected by their governments and destined to become their nation's future leaders, these youngsters represent a new generation committed to ending the violence that has plagued their region and creating real peace with their neighbors.

"Ilana Raviv is a citizen of the world who prefers to be interested rather than being interesting ...She perceives the real relationship to art, by knowing what it is... Her work stems from a cup that runnith over filled by art from the source which is art in relationship to life ... Her works inspired by the dynamics of living to points of joy in revelation and celebration is her art".

(Knox Martin, Professor of Art, formerly at Yale University Art Dept.)

With techniques in acrylic paintings, drawing, etching, cast paper, tapestry, mural and clay sculpture, this Israeli artist creates different levels of reality in spontaneous work. Her work does not represent any philosophical stream and does not require interpretation, decisions or the search for conclusions. "Each moment creates another moment, shape makes way for other shapes". The artist characterizes her work as "Synthetic Realism: which represents "an alternative metaphor to reality" (Ilana Raviv, Magna Mater 2000). The colors and shapes of her paintings blend and create a general impression of a different and synthetic reality. From an aesthetic point of view, the artist wishes to open a door well beyond reality and logic, by creating metaphors, using elements that appear in the works of such artists as Picasso, Matisse, Miro as well as American contemporary painter Knox Martin.
