(American | Israeli, born 1953)
Ilan Averbuch creates large-scale outdoor sculptures, made from raw materials such as stone and wood, as well as metals and glass. In his own words, his art “involves the recycling of images and materials, moving from one time span to another.”
Averbuch grew up in Israel. He studied art at the Wimbledon School of Art in London, England, and then earned a Bachelor of Arts degree (1981) from the School of Visual Arts and a Master of Fine Arts degree (1985) from Hunter College, both in New York City. He taught in the Department of Art at State University of New York (SUNY) at Stony Brook from 1994-2000. Averbuch is based in Long Island, New York.
