Curator: Etti Abergel

Following her recent exhibition at the Barbur Gallery, Jerusalem, Riva Pinsky Awadish continues to study the relationship between the act of painting and the platform, using the given material as a readymade. Pinsky Awadish uses various fabrics with different textures into which she weaves and onto which she draws and paints personal and dizzying images with a free hand.
The current works on display at the Jerusalem Artists’ House differ from her previous works by being arranged in a disciplined order dictated by the grid. They are based on a clear, cyclical structure, on points of encounter and collisions between vertical and horizontal lines that seem to trace the regularity of the weave.
The artist uses fabric such as a kaffiyeh, blanket and shawl to provide starting points for painterly and imaginative development.
