A nicely framed large format 36x48 original serigraph AP 18/30 by one of Israels most popular contemporary artists.

Bracha Guy is an artist whose creative impulse is rarely at rest. She is continually seeking new means of expression and unusual contextual combinations and forms. Throughout her work, certain characteristics and motifs recur a rich palette, ornamentation with a pronounced Eastern nuance, and the figure of a woman. That woman embodies beauty, happiness, sensuality, fertility as well as confidence, calm and control. With strong hues of red, green, turquoise and gold combining ancient and modern cultures, Bracha Guy creates a festive atmosphere, reflecting her optimism about life. The ornateness of her paintings, with their abundant convolutions, generate a warm atmosphere of cushioning and flattering charm. Contemplating her works, the spectator is enthusiastically and movingly drawn into the beauty of the astonishing world mirrored there. Instead of a calculated plan, Guy's works are a release of feeling through color and form. She does not paint from sketches, rather , from the moment she holds a brush in her hand, color takes charge. As the artist herself puts it, I have a yearning to cover the world with beauty, to create and infuse it with life. Transforming the figure of a woman into a creative work is a kind of dream, an idea or fantasy, like rolling a stone from the top of a mountain and seeing where it goes.
