Naomi Safran-Hon Exhibition 12.01.2013-24.2.2013
“At first sight the it refers to construction, but once transformed, cement in my Studio, reflects the way my life is shaped by political reality. Construction of identity is intertwined with the construction of the landscape. I use cement as paint, involving not only the limits of my area are explored, but also ideas about painting and the limits of this medium. I find it interesting to find the limits of the material, and thus both views about art as about politics are denounced. With this Visual work I try to offer a bridge to the isolated viewer of the political world outside.”(Naomi Safran-Hon)
