ARTWORKS > Feeling Meets Structure

This is a mixed media painting. Oils with collage of different clothing fragments. A girl is depicted from the back. She is dressed in white. Grey fragments of an embroidered shirt are blended with the background, creating an imaginary hilly landscape. Tactile and strange.
The artist bought this grey embroidered Indian blouse in Jerusalem and wore it for years. The blouse had many, many little buttons. When the time came to part with it, the artist felt an urge to make it a part of this painting. Some clothes take an important and mysterious part in the wearer's life.
