The real category of this Picture is Mixed media medium: a picture painted with industrial oil paint, on a collage of glue, duplex cardboard & papers. The support is an old silkscreen-net with its pine wood frame, in past for silk-screen print (serigraphy). The work has a final Dammar Varnish coat, on the backside its covered by passepartout cardboard sealed with glue. This is one of the works for my 2013's individual show "About Guardians, Angels & Guardian Angels", and it was related to incredible stories of my grandfather who fought at WWI for the Zar of Russia, and then at the Russian Civil War, who passed dozens of battles culminating each one with his uniform and cap pierced by shots and bayonets but never hurt. He always spoke about "his Guardian Angel", and this show was the fruit of some years of investigation and speculation about Angels in all cultures, and recreate these creatures and their world if they exist. This image is of a creative Angel, who paints situations that became real at the underworld after the picture is finished. A kind of Seraph-Painter, whose imagination creates realities.

Ricardo Lapin is a plastic artist based in Israel. He was born at Buenos Aires, Argentina, 1961. At age 16 he left to Israel at the times of Military "Junta". He began to study oil painting at age 10, and this discipline become a way of life: with more knowledge & experience, it continues till today. My Artist Statement: Art is a meeting between the individual and the universal, question marks about the human soul. I believe that the artist must reflect the "Zeitgeist" of the period he works. My own struggles and dilemmas, the culture and environment in which I live are present in every piece of work. Painting for me is my inmost protected and stable place, like a priceless shelter. Always present, since my early childhood, despite changing situations and realities. A territory that can be built and changed endlessly, a meeting place for memories, fears, desires. Within the creative process everything has existence, without a name or definition, there is place where everything is possible and can be repaired. My work is born mainly from images, the imagery nurtured by experiences, stemming from memories and dreams, mine and from my family. The artist work examines and describes the existence of man in this world, allows the brave inquiring of actual and local values . Alongside the aesthetic expression, my works seek to examine the limits of justice and freedom, the meaning of life and death in a period of spiritual loss, depression and continuing devaluation of human lives. Images come to me. As waking up from a dream, I catch them by sketching, drawing them before they escape; after that I articulate them and find new related images, in an associative process. I can perceive that many images have an aroma of oral stories, memories, family legends, secret traumas. Sometimes they arrive from mystery and remain there, even when already painted. The final work is sometimes a kind of unfinished sentence, to be filled in by the public, in many surprising ways, sometimes very far from my associations & ideas during the creative process. It's always magic and truthful for me to realize about the multiple ways of reading my work.
