Boxes of Light is an exhibition opening at the The Farkash Gallery on October 25, 2016, featuring a series of works by Tel Aviv-based artist Ariella Wertheimer, inspired by her experiences with women in Jaffa since she moved to Tel Aviv 3 years ago.
“The Farkash Gallery is proud to present a series of works by the artist Ariela Wertheimer,” says gallery owner Aharon Farkash. “When I first met Ariella’s works they hit me with an intensity that I haven’t felt in a long time. Ariela’s works are an optical experience of a visual communication tool, giving the viewer a personal and humane experience that won’t leave him indifferent.”
Some of the themes in Wertheimer’s works include the visual imagery of bars that reflect the concepts of people’s vulnerability and existence “in their own small or large prison of the past and present pain which they carry with them.”
“I felt the need to provide a platform and specifically a platform for our vulnerability – because that is where we have room to grow, and the vulnerability becomes a strengthening and building aspect of our foundations,” she says. “We, as human beings have the right and reason to decide how to deal with obstacles. Will we develop and grow or stay in the same place?
“And the importance of understanding that we have the power within us to allow ourselves to make a change in our lives. In one of my encounters with the women, whose image I painted in a box of light, said to me: ‘I’m not as strong as you made me! ‘ I answered, “You’re a strong and powerful woman, but these things have a price. They lay on our shoulders with all the weight of life.’”
