site specific wall paintings and works on paper

Pastoral Slumber, the site-specific mural I created for the exhibit “Good Night” at the Israel Museum, aims to awaken emotions like those a child feels when seeing monsters in the shadows of a dark bedroom. The image is a striped sheet that can be viewed simultaneously as a landscape of mountains and valleys. By lowering my point of view and enlarging the scale of this everyday intimate object, I evoke a feeling of distance, monumentality, and consequent threat.

The mural is painted directly on the walls of the museum with diluted house paint, creating an effect of watercolor or pencil. The painted stripes give another dimension to the painting, weaving in and out, at times seeming to integrate with the folds of the sheet and at other times remaining a flat pattern.
