After being introduced to Picasso and looking at some of his portraits, I used an idea given to me by my friend Dafna. We took one of Picasso's large portraits and divided it up equally between the kids. In this case, each one got a quarter of the picture. I asked them to enlarge their piece and to reproduce it. I loved this project so much.
Each of the works stood out on their own. They became abstracts full of bold colours and pattern. Even though they were copying, the kids included their own style in their piece.
Here is the final piece! Wonderful!
We made a visit to the Israel Museum in Jerusalem over the holiday! It has been a while since I have been there and we had such a wonderful time. From ancient mummies to the present day. I particularly wanted to visit this new exhibition 'No Place Like Home'.
"An experimental exhibition, No Place Like Home brings objects-turned-artworks into a quasi-home within the Museum, exploring the question of what happens if we restore a transformed object to its "natural" place within a mock home."
They already had me at the word home as it really connects to my own work so much. But there were so many layers here. I loved how it was designed as if it were a floor plan in an architectural drawing. Above are some of my favourite pieces. I highly recommend a visit.
