4as FORWORD, Aleksandra Stoyanov, brown paper and thread, , 106.5" x 45.5", SOLD

Israel has two sides, from one it is a land, a country we are living with its contradictions, war, problems, beauty...From the other it is the Holy Land, promised and given by God. The work reflects the Holy Land, shining in the golden light. When I keep threads in my hands I feel that they are ground, the grass, that there is a life in them. The feeling of thread in my hands is the first appeal for me to begin working on a new piece."

Aleksandra Stoyanov
