Solo and a Half
Curator: Shira Goren Sabag
The broaches are inspired by an intergenerational dialogue.
They happen in the gaps created by the differences between artists, languages of design, perspectives and egos.
On Saturday afternoons, my grandfather and I would paint together. First, we examined artists and techniques, different strokes of paint creating an image.
His paintings and drawings depicted his world, the “Hatikva” market, where he owned a store. Mine depicted a glamour world of high fashion and beauty. He would dismiss my desires and ask me to stay with the “real world”. His world.
