Art Description

Drawing: Ink, Monotype and Metal on Other and Paper.

The Iron Ladies was at the "Fe male" exhibition, at SBCAST - Santa Barbara Center for Art, Science and Technology.
This exhibition was accompanied by a 2-week residency, that would also mark the final event of "707070 - 70 days, 70 artists, 70th anniversary to the state of Israel", a huge 3-venues exhibition curated by Sagi Refael and Lynn holley in Santa Barbara, California. The work is made by ink & rust on fine paper.
Women artists often struggle between artistic creation and maintaining a professional career, to raising children and keeping a stable domestic life. My idea of the Home, a place that is charged for women who are also career-driven artists, represents both a safe place, alongside a limiting space that sets strict borders. I am drawn to the tension between all these feelings - the home that is the dream for some, and is burden for others
The works in the exhibition deal with the home as a domestic space in light of the national and symbolic home; a sheltered and personal space vs the society’s public image of it, a secluded sanctuary yet also acting as a limitation; an ideal but yet mundane habitat
