A Breath of Air – Leead Shamir (2013)

It is only out of density that one can can breath as only from darkness can the light be seen. Thus, Leead Shamir confronts her demons and searches for space in her creations – diving to the deep and rising for a breath of air. She erupts with force, exposing, covering and exposing again, spilling and scratching. Her art conveys her inner conflicts between beauty and ugliness, cleanliness and dirt, exposure and concealment, density and space. In her little studio in a shed in her Kibbutz, among fields and eucalyptus trees she creates multi layered worlds , that reflect her personality.
