White Zen

Popolus Gallery,
Tel-Aviv

November 2001
 

Popolus, a Gallery in a Shelter turns into a shelter of calmness.  White – an escape into the world of Zen comes after the exhibition Postcards from the Edge. 
In Postcards… I dealt with the current violence and the suffering is causing, while White neglects all the turmoil. White is an excursion into purism (A movement that proposed a kind of painting in which objects were represented as powerful basic forms).  The white of the used paint, the white (areas left empty of drawings) of the background and the white of the walls give a feeling of quiet.  The Zen is express by my action of painting itself, and harmony felt on the works.   An experience of silence,  making Popolus a retreat.
