Mirit Ben Nun
Born August 8, 1966

These paintings express a personal need to delineate images and fantasies abundant with
color and emotional explosion. Signs, lines and the materials appear of their own volition
and develop as an external language bridging the eye, the hand and the painted surface.
During the making of a painting the power of the shapes emanate from an unconscious
and concealed inner dimension.
Line by line, painting after painting while repeating shapes and patterns, a creation
evolves into new shapes and patterns. With a determination that reaches obsession, Mirit
Ben-Nun keeps on returning to her art of meticulous decoration. A strong presence of
primitive ornamentation provides the artwork with a tribal facet on one hand and a
feminine touch on the other, encompassing embroidery, bead threading and weaving
among others. Ben- Nun’s beautifying urge carries within it an archetypal strata, mythic
at times, which empowers her authentic expression.
