There are the three characters I created recently. Last time,
I told you about the one with the masks, and today I'd like to
introduce the one with the huge bag, where she carries some of
During the last few years, I have created several characters
wearing masks. I assume it falls under the same interest I
have in Topsy Turvy characters, who can be two different
characters at the same time. Recently, I created a new
series of three female characters, which I'd like to present
here (yes, I still haven't "killed" my blog, even though I
am not updating it as much as I would like to). Each
character has her own unwritten story. The first one is this
woman, with her masks and totem.
The show is now on
, and here are some photos of my Topsy Turvy characters at the gallery.
I framed both of them in a laser-cut wooden hoop, in order to hang them at the center of the gallery space. (The exhibition will be on show at Artemisia Gallery
, 31 Abarbanel St., Tel Aviv, and it will continue until the end of October)
ago, I was asked to participate in an illustration exhibition,
as part of the
around one fairy tale, The Red Silk Ribbon, which is
quite long and has a
complicated plot. In short, it tells the story of a fisherman
who can't fish
anymore, so in order
to get more fish, he promises
to let a mermaid have something
he has in his own house, but
doesn't know what it is yet. Apparently, it is his
own son (when he arrives home, his wife tells him she is
pregnant). When Lucas, the son, grows up, his life becomes
quite difficult, but then, one day, he receives a gift: The
ability to transform
himself into four different animals, and this gift enables him
to marry a beautiful princess. Meanwhile, the
mermaid hasn't forgotten what she was promised, and transforms
the princess into a dragon... This is a very short summary,
since the fairy tale
includes many more details and subplots.
illustrate two scenes depicting the transformation
process in the fairy tale by creating Topsy Turvy
characters who have two heads and share the same body. As I had
a short time to complete the work, it was quite an intense process.
Here are some images of my piece. The exhibition is already
on show at Artemisia Gallery,
31 Abarbanel St.,
Tel Aviv, and it will continue
until the end of October.
It is summertime
again, and I finally have much more time to spend at the studio.
But suddenly I felt
the familiar "Blank Page" fear, so I grabbed some scraps:
Crocheted body parts, hands, legs, and heads, normal emergency supplies.
I started to
play around with them and put them together, to see what I could
get out of all those discarded pieces, and after a while, these
three creatures emerged, which I named The Weirdos.
