Painter and sculptor

"I am fascinated by people. They are my subject. To understand them, preserve them, bring them back to a kind of life. Using clay, oil painting, pencil, pen, or water color."
"I have known Honey Rovit for many years as a serious and dedicated painter on the subject of humanity and the family. Her work is a desire to merge her many singular images of women and children into one structure. These works I consider among her best. They become her voice in reflecting the ever struggle of masses of people gathered together to make themselves heard.
Honey Rovit deserves recognition in her own right as a serious fine painter on the human condition."
“The painting is very charming, very sensitive .One feels this is something real to the artist: the whole Jewish mystique of the family. It is successfully handled.”
PHILLIP ADAMS, DIRECTOR, CINCINATTI MUSEUMER
“Apart from references to Thomas Mann, the “Gypsy with a Green wagon” proves that Honey Rovit has a voice of her own.”
LLOYD GOODRICH, DIRECTOR, WHITNEY MUSEUM
“Ms Rovit applies her brush and pen most often to revealing studies of women and Jewish family life, but even when the mood is profoundly Jewish, there is nothing parochial about her work. Peter Agostini who
arranged a showing of her work, saw in her line drawings ‘the cruel poetry of the commonplace’ but there is more charm and poetry than cruelty in them. Her women in the Family paintings are gentle with fine
aquiline features and patrician bearing….. There is solemnity in her Hassidic Wedding, intensified by its wealth of detail and rich color.”
SARAH LANDSDELL, LOUISVILLE COURIER JOURNAL
“ ..her work is poignant to the immigrant experience in this country”
DEBORAH M. ROTHCHILD, CURATOR OF CONTEMPORARY ART, WILLIAMS COLLEGE MUSEUM
“…the accomplished beauty of the paintings…issues of death and re birth which are so apparent as themes in the work…”
