Sigalit Aharoni

Festival: 2017

My work includes figurative Paintings, Collages, Book illustrations and various design projects using a wide range of media and materials.
In my work I focus on the relation between the object and background.
My interest is to express motion and integration of an object with it’s surrounding to achieve an holistic, unified experience.
My goal is to share and expose the viewer to my intimate experience of the subject.

Artist statement for Artwork #1 – “Free At Last, Free with Lust”
On the wide open southern beaches of Israel, I have discovered a modern race of the legendary “Amazons” – Russian immigrant elderly women, exposing their solid massive body to the warmth of the Israeli sun, standing upright with their bikinis, letting each fold and wrinkle reveal years passed, ignoring the contemporary perceptions and fashion rules – Free with their body, Free at last – Free with their lust.

“Free at last, Free at last, Thank God almighty we are free at last.”
Martin Luther King Jr. – I Have a Dream
