Pomegranates in the Old City, Tel Aviv, Israel, 2019, 20" x 16", Acrylic on wood panel painting by Toronto Artist Rachael Grad
Fragments of memory are reflected in this painting. I cut up and pasted together my own photographs of Tel Aviv taken in October 2019. Then I painted this artwork of pomegranates, kites and old buildings based on the paper collage of my photographs.
The broken pieces of collage symbolize the illusion of memory. What actually happened and what’s remembered is unclear because of the nebulous nature of memory. Photographs appear to document events but the memories are questioned through the combined fragments of documented and imagined scenes.
