Light Between The Islands an installation includes islands of shimmering white bubbles, from various sizes, handmade from a different mold and drawings silkscreened over each of their surfaces. The bubbles that form the installations, are apart of modular units and layers. Amoros multiplies and arranges the units into structures that could become monumental in scale while appearing to be weightless. The appearance of the artworks will change as light that streams through the gallery’s front window changes throughout the day. Sometimes the installation will seem buoyant and ethereal, while at other times it will appear to be a solid mass. In any guise, she intends Light Between The Islands to convey a sense of wonder and playfulness. As visitors walk around, they will encounter and react to its presence and magic of her beloved Uros Islands in Lake Titicaca.

Litvak Gallery, founded in 2008, in early 2012 the gallery expanded its reach by representing artists of all media with showcases of contemporary Israeli and international artists.
