Dalia Meiri, Artist ,Sculptor presents a series of
prints in mixed media that were created during her stay at Cite Internationale des Arts in Paris.
The views of the city of lights can be observed
as background weaved within her images portraying the impressions of wandering its
streets and neighborhoods.
Meiri brings a new aesthetic statement
in her works inspired by the culture of the past, like ancient churches, mosaics and
vitrages, and the constant present altering
of city landscapes, changing colors, mainly human, with the masses of immigrants,
particularly Africans, who are overcrowding the city.
Meiri's complex images are created of many layers performed in
various techniques, originally and unique, some developed by "trial and
error", combining etching, engraving, linoleum prints, by combining various materials,
colors and techniques.
the exhibition displays a series of latest ceramic sculptures as a link between
her previous sculpture works and the new series of prints.
Meiri is an original artist, creating
through a process of constant change and renewal, both in techniques and
content, though in her works she returns to the self portrait, in the search of
introspective insight, drawn from her experiences from her travels to far away
cultures in distance and time
