About Mijal Zachs

After 20 years of exploration, my work has become a dialogue between painting and textiles. I look for the limits of the pictorial ensemble, and then cross borders where installation, nature and textile art converge within the pictorial work.

For me, painting is the channel to connect with the other; it’s a language that leaves its mark and reverberates as an echo of multiple pictorial identities: painting is mimesis and, at the same time, it’s a simulation of an exposed alterity, of the "self" being "other".
