Introducing Sharon Webber-Zvik (lives and works in Kfar-Yona, Israel), one of the artists participating in New Poetics of Labor 2018.
“I create from the most emotional and personal place, when words becomes a limited tool. I hope to examine myself, to look into my thoughts on a more plastic and perceptible way. Usually, I plan to create a single work but like tears they come one after the other, until relief.
I don’t think about techniques, or plan it – I simply cave in to all thoughts and ideas, deciding by feeling what will serve the idea best. I know that I do not have the best technique, I acknowledge that. Sometimes it can be a helpful to accept the absence of realism. Most of the time I appreciate the opportunity to communicate my ideas and thoughts through art. My hope is that art can change people’s perceptions.”
