10 – 27 August 2017
I demonstrate remarkable self control in the presence of artworks by Avital Scheffer. Every fibre of my body cries out to touch, caress and pick up these attractive ceramic artifacts. The objects ooze Middle Eastern culture from the faded sun drenched colours to the faded painted Hebrew inscriptions on parts of the works.
Scheffer creates objects that evoke Arabian nights with their wonderful curves and decorative shapes. From the narrow necks and pointed stoppers ro the curvey bodies of these vessels there is a historical reference to all of her work.
I love her work and have the gallery sheet and some pics below
