The feminine dimension is the central theme of artist Iris Yeheskelís
alluring, rigorously conceived and fiercely intelligent paintings. Profound,
sensitive feelings are unfolded among the blocks of color, which she
enriches with fine brushstrokes of shapes that become mutually intertwined.
Projecting substantial evidence of her arduous painting process, her vivid
and vigorous paintings often seem to simulate urban surfaces as they appear
on a map, as though photographed from a plane hovering in the sky. Occupied
with a birdís eye view, her approach suggests her keen devotion to her
country of Israel while soaring above the tangible, the daily, to achieve a
little piece of paradise from the "Land of Nowhere."
Yeheskel studied art at the Avni Institute of Art in Tel-Aviv where she was a student of artist Leo Contini. Solo exhibitions include "Genesis" at the Bible Museum in Tel-Aviv, "Under Your Wings" at the "Muse Windows" in Ramat Aviv, "Abracadabra" at Yad Lebanim at Nes Ziona, and "Original Language" at the Culture Center in Petach Tikva. She has also participated extensively in group exhibitions.
