"Mares" Chen Shapira

When we devote ourselves to the meditativity of Shapira's abstract paintings, it seems that the gaze and the soul are slowly sinking into the material in the depths of existence, into the seemingly chaotic chaos of the human dimension. But at the same time it is the primary material of life from which all things are created. It is an abstract which is the accumulated residues of the soul through filters of matter.
In the exhibition there are only six paintings that stretch on the whiteness of the walls, completely naked. A wind blowing in from the open door passes through them, and they breathe and gasp.
