<br />Mirit Ben Nun <br />Born August 8, 1966 <br /><br />These paintings express a personal need to delineate images and fantasies abundant with <br />color and emotional explosion. Signs, lines and the materials appear of their own volition <br />and develop as an external language bridging the eye, the hand and the painted surface. <br />During the making of a painting the power of the shapes emanate from an unconscious <br />and concealed inner dimension. <br />Line by line, painting after painting while repeating shapes and patterns, a creation <br />evolves into new shapes and patterns. With a determination that reaches obsession, Mirit <br />Ben-Nun keeps on returning to her art of meticulous decoration. A strong presence of <br />primitive ornamentation provides the artwork with a tribal facet on one hand and a <br />feminine touch on the other, encompassing embroidery, bead threading and weaving <br />among others. Ben- Nun’s beautifying urge carries within it an archetypal strata, mythic <br />at times, which empowers her authentic expression. <br /><br />Dr. Gidion Ofrat and Ami Steinitz <br /><br />
