ABOUT ME

My name is Shir Zalcman and I am thirty-five years old. I am an Israeli artist and an art therapist based in central Israel. focusing on acrylic and charcoal mediums painted on a variety of canvas sizes.

 

I paint shapes and colours that elicit the emotional experience of my everyday. Using palette knives, brushes, and charcoal, I create depth in my paintings with texture and line work.

My work captures the essence of a feeling, creating a multitude of possibilities to be felt through the subjective experience of the viewer. I aim to provoke these feelings deep within ourselves that words are limited to describe, captured instead by the movements of our hearts caught in the midst of a visual vision.
