Collages: monoprint, metallic gold and silver leaf, crayon, coloured pencil, ink, print reproductions of original gouache and watercolour paintings, on paper, wood and craft tubes.
From the series:
The theme of the exhibition is Post Eden art of living, the project being a collaboration with ElenaBerlo. The exhibit is constructing, conceptually and especially emotionally-sensorially, on two well known archetypes, Adam and Eve and The Garden of Eden, Gan Eden גַּן עֵדֶן in Aramaic, Hebrew. At the base there are two flights as I call them: one is the flight from yourself, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and the second is the desire to return, or to find yourself, the Garden, and the Tree of Life.
The collages -a map of deeply embedded gene memories brought to surface in form of fantasy and dreams - are using various process and materials from both realms, the natural like wood, fabric, watercolours, oils and paper, symbolizing the return to nature, and synthetic - the inhale of the world, the techno (=man made) world, like plastic, foam, polymers, acrylics, metal and raisins.

This project is a discourse on how relative and magic things are with humans: from smallest detail to the bigger picture, we are completely emotionally driven in thinking, the place we live in being first and foremost the place our heart and mind lives in. The illusion of solidity and precision is nothing more than a state of mind and emotional coherence. However, when one’s losing one’s mind and comes to one’s senses, the discovery of spell is recognized immediately. Order your own map of sweet illusion in the preferred colour and accents.
