Sharon Shamay Artist

Live and works in Givat-Ada, Israel

Inspiration to my artwork drives mainly from routine landscapes and objects that often go unnoticed by the banality and routine daily life. I paint unnoticed objects as solar boilers, electric poles, Road signs, roadsides, satellite maps, bus stations, and directional signs • To create my artwork, I use a combination of a variety of techniques and materials, which moves between femininity and masculinity. Concrete, wood, wires, fabrics, and textiles threads, acrylic and oil paints, salt, rust, photographs, clay, pigments, pencils, inks, and more • In the last year I started working with monoprint with a stencil I cut myself. The inspiration for these monoprints is satellite maps and aerial photography of urban and rural landscapes. The locations are ones that have some role in my autobiography. I am experimenting with monoprint and textile colors on fabrics, paper, and wood. I also developed monoprint using concrete instead of traditional printing inks.
