In her work, Israeli born artist Stavit Allweis, explores the continuum between the still and the moving image.
As an MFA graduate student at Columbia her paintings became increasingly narrative. She was soon captured by the magic of sequential art and comics and started producing her work in story-series.
It wasn't long before she embarked on a self taught journey into directing and began production of "ISNESS", a photo-graphic novel.
"ISNESS" is the story of an epic 24 hours in the life of a post apocalyptic family, oddly situated in the late 1960's.
It assembles live action shots with miniature backgrounds to create a world of it's own.
Her recent film "Cooking with Connie", a short about a mail order bride in the 1970s has won "Best Experimental Film" at the Brooklyn Film Festival.
She is currently working on her next film "Execution"
Allweis lives and works in Brooklyn, New York
