In her solo exhibition, Efrat Kishon will present illustrations from the past two years and her studies at the Visual Communication Department at WIZO Haifa.
Kishon illuminates most of the small, morbid daily situations to which she casts her personal point of view.
According to her, she likes to direct the situations before she begins to illustrate, freeze a moment in reality, and add to the illustration elements of a surrealistic nature.
Her illustrations are often blunt, perhaps controversial. They deal with sexuality, anxiety, body image.
Many of the inspirations come from a place of detachment from the body, emotional situations that are presented as cold and disconnected from context.
At first glance, the illustrations may seem innocent and naïve, because of the pastel colors she tends to use – pink, light blue and black
But the difference between the color it uses for the content it deals with, creates dissonance in the viewer.
