Statement

 Statment:

The immediate reading of Sima Meir works, places them in the context of materialism, toil and women's manual labor.

By using ordinary materials like sharpies and pens, on a particularly smooth surface she creates a unique effect that can be related to the photography world; the focus, the color, illusion and the photographic resolution.

In this way the ancient handicraft get up to date look;

conceptual migration from fine craft to fine art.
