Shira paints with and etches into graphite and plaster in her black and gray artwork. The minimalist marks of this painting depict a rough industrial aesthetic. Geometric scuff marks and splatters apply a soft feeling to a colder painting.
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.
