Shimrit Baer "Partial Shade"
By Yair Shulevitz (September 01, 2011)
This exhibition presents drawings of landscapes and figures that were drawn in pen on small format paper. The choice of these modest and minimalist tools is not coincidental: Shimrit Baer has no interest in external means, but rather in the gaze of the inward-looking viewer.
A poetic mood prevails over her drawings. Baer's work is chamber-like and touches on extremely fragile capillaries, walking on the edge of bare nerve.
