Larissa van Zanen complains about two worlds around her. The first world consists out of the established regularity of daily life, of order and etiquette. This order suppresses her that much that it gives her a will to destroy things and break out of them. Her paintings are born out of agitation, complaint and anger, embedded is the second world that consists of disasters, despair and broken objects. In some fragments of destruction, she recognizes
and feels comforted. Fortunately it is not always the same.
To destroy is easier than to build, but it depends on which fundamental idea. It is more appealing to ruin something that is beautiful and intact then to cross the borders and imperfections with the broken pieces of regularity.
Ron Amir finds the truth in art as an expression of emotion which has a strong impact on the viewer. Human condition and expression become his main source of inspiration. He sees his large works as a form of self-portraiture where thoughts turn into patterns and images. Those images range from the figurative to the abstract, through landscapes or crowded scenes, echo both personal and social interpretations. The over crowdedness of details, the meditative manner of drawing and the huge efforts he puts into his work reflect the traditional values of the artist.
