Vessel Collage is unique in comparison to Shira Toren’s body of work. It is collaged and distinctly figurative. Still, the work embodies Shira’s soft lines and scrubbed away textures, producing the aged effect seen in the majority of her art.
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.
