Mirit Furstenberg, an Israeli Artist to Exhibit Her Work "Blind Side" In New York Gallery
Mirit Furstenberg will exhibit her work "Blind Side" as part of the "Artist at Home and Abroad" group exhibition at the Broadway Gallery.
Israeli-born artist Mirit Furstenberg majored in graphic design at Hadassah-WIZO Canada Institute of Art in Haifa. In 2004, after years of working in the field of graphic art and design, she stumbled upon a sculpting technique using wire mesh. This discovery led her to follow in the footsteps of Shulamit Hartal, the developer and founder of the technique. Working alongside Hartal has opened up a whole world of self-expression.
"The ongoing dialogue between me and the wire mesh gives birth to reflections of myself, my life, and my desires. Being able to find my truth—in between the folds and bending of the net—from the minute I start working all the way to the end, fulfills me. The material is so flexible I can change my desire as I go along, which makes the final piece a total surprise."
Her work focuses on woman, body, and femininity. The cold, rough and scratchy mesh melts for her, as she shapes the truth in the little details that touch the viewer's heart.
