Shira Toren
Born in Tel Aviv, Israel / Works in Bushwick, NY
There is a sense of history in Shira's paintings. They are built up patiently like the hands of potters that their surfaces resemble, but left to be scratched and marked by some unknown force. Even the central objects are pressed into the thick layer of venetian plaster instead of sitting on top. In a world of polished surfaces, Shira's use of materials restores the power of time.
You'll love Shira's works if: you appreciate the crack and wears on old paintings more than their neatly restored counterparts.
