Shlomo Harush. I Came by Chance with Intention
16.01.2019 – 16.02.2019
Opening at the artists’ presence
“When Shlomo Harush tells his stories, he does not dip his pen in ink, but bends iron with his hands, bends it as if he were writing, as if he were drawing. The line of the nib turns into aluminium, bronze, brass or stainless steel wire. The result is a long uninterrupted stroke that gives life to the most varied figures” – Jean Blanchaert.
Shlomo Harush (Jerusalem, 1961) studied Middle Eastern history at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Photography at Hadassa Community College in Jerusalem.
After living and working in Milan from 1990, in 1998 Harush moved to New York City, where he has since worked in a studio in Brooklyn, creating multidisciplinary art: sculptures, photography, installations, paintings, and mixed media.
Harush’s main focus in recent years has been the metamorphosis of forms and materials, achieving intriguing interrelations between art and industry while constantly challenging boundaries.
