Artist list

Vered Kaminski
The Israeli artist Vered Kaminski describes her latest body of work as an enigma...a word that suggests a secret known to few. While at first glance her work appears elegantly simple, upon further examination the viewer becomes aware of the intricate techniques the artist has employed and is drawn into her secrets.
 
On the one hand she approaches her work with metal wire as pain-stakingly as a drawing in which there is no end and no beginning ...forming a continuous flow of design. Simultaneously, Vered employs the rules of textile weaving in a number of her pieces...placing one wire above and one below (the warp and weft). The intermingling of the coolness of silver with the warmth of copper in these pieces further adds to the feeling of no beginning and no end...so cleverly are the two metals interwoven. The elegant pendants are perfectly complemented by her twisted wirework chains.
 
In her flat surface pieces Vered is also creating a puzzle... challenging us to understand how she has figuratively drawn a line without "lifting her pen" to create curving and intersecting forms. The shapes she creates open "windows" in the metal to form a pattern contrasting light against dark.-2016-2016
