Dorit Jordan Dotan, Israeli-German artist, was born in Israel in 1961. In her work Dorit combines her photography with innovative digital art. Her images often express her social/political views. Through her creations, she attempts to call attention to social and cultural issues.
Jordan Dotan lives and works in Chicago, IL. She is a Fellow with the Jewish Art Salon, and was Artist in Residence with the Artist’s Lab of Spertus Institute in Chicago. Her work has been exhibited in Israel and around the world. In recent years she has exhibited often in the HUC Museum New York, in a continuing process of creating contemporary Jewish art.
Dorit has participated in the Jerusalem Biennale in 2015 and 2017. She curated an exhibition at the Evanston Art Center for Fall, 2017. She collects found objects in order to create new and useful items, transforming what’s been discarded into things of worth and beauty. Lately she has returned to her brushes and paints, and is working on a series of acrylics and colored pencils. She is a guest curator and Juror for the Woman Made Gallery, Chicago. Currently she is working on her One Woman Art Show at Wedge Gallery, Chicago.
For the past twenty five years, she has run her own independent graphic design studio.
Most of her clients have been non-profit organizations which are active in the areas of peace, co-existence, women’s issues and human and animal's rights.
She has created an impressive body of fine art images and photographs, including architectural, textural and urban genres.
As a long-time participant in many social change activities, her role as a documentary photographer has brought her photographs and designs to the wider Israeli public.
She has often served voluntarily as in-house photographer for many activist organizations. Her photographs have been published in Israeli online news and have been used for publications, brochures, and posters of Israeli non-governmental organizations. Recent photos were published at Gush Shalom (in Hebrew, the name means "The Peace Bloc" the activist arm of the Israeli peace movement).
