(b. 1977, lives in Ostrov, Czechia) is inspired in her work by symbols of various cultures, religions and philosophical systems. She combines themes rooted in Christianity with archaic pagan motifs and artefacts taken from Eastern beliefs, especially Buddhism. The past in her works is looped with the future as an expression of a reborn, cyclical time. In the diversity of human heritage, the artist searches for what is common, for archetypes and paths of spiritual growth. She works for a new myth that binds humanity together, which is rooted in the cult of nature and the community of life on Earth. Fuchs creates drawings, wall paintings, painted fabrics, installations, sculptures, and ceramics.

The works of Habima Fuchs are an invitation to contemplate the power of nature as the root of human creativity and spirituality. Organic ceramic forms and ink drawings bring out nature’s ability to regenerate itself, generate new forms, fluidity and eternal transformation. The artist gives these qualities a mythical dimension. She connects references to the elements of water (in the Great Ocean Continuously Creating drawings) with cosmic and religious symbols, such as the mandorla or the sphere. Open Human draws on images of archaic demons and deities of nature.
