Liora, Feel 3, 2021, Available on Artpser

The use of the color black is a common thread in the work of Liora. Confronting him with intense colors such as blue or red, this black reinforces the oppositions. Liora’s works deal with light and darkness, life and death, love and hate… A tension that we find in Feel 3, notably thanks to the mixture of antagonistic forms and colors.

Oil painting, a contemplative parenthesis?

Because it requires a great technical mastery, oil painting is an art of patience. And this dimension is very present in the artists who choose to dedicate themselves to it. Despite a remarkable diversity, their works have in common to be particularly contemplative. It’s a meditative poetry that never ceases to move us.
