The school is closed during the corona period.
Shira Gepstein M: "The heart of my artwork is the work itself, the possibility of combining familiar elements into something new. Give the world a new look and raise a debate about urgent and historical subjects''.
Quote by Gilad Meltzer, who curated Gepstein-M.’s work at the solo exhibition, “Green well”, Binyamin Gallery (Tel Aviv): "There are combinations that seem impossible, for example strength and humor. But the paintings of poetry Gepstein offers, points us to unexpected extreme events such as these. Laying expressive and aggressive paint strokes, dissolving into scenes supposedly naïve, sort of banal photographs of mothers in urban surroundings. As such they only look naïve and relaxed, but in reality, they are alive, kicking, disturbed, attacked and surrounded by noise. Gepstein produces expressive new, fresh, full of life paintings”.
