Eggs. Painting - Photography - Installation, 2004
Varda Carmeli brings together various means of expression she has used during her many years of artistic work. Painting and photography serve as two elements that engage in a dialogue and cooperate in uniting layers of artistic statement
The installation “Eggs” directs the viewer’s gaze at the textures and shapes represented by this organic object; a significant statement develops from this critical gaze, both at the visual and at the image-cum-symbol levels.
The egg, an ancient symbol in diverse cultures, represents birth and recurrence and in these days of cloning and of artificial insemination a descent into the realm of the study of existence, too.
The process as a place of creativity inwardly forges the fundamentals of implementation and portrayal both in the “work” of nature and in art work.
The installation that Varda Carmeli constructs beckons us inside to linger, to wonder and to marvel.
