Harush Shlomo - “Interaction” - 2008
Harush Shlomo “Interaction”2008
There is constant interaction between Shlomo’s work and the environment.
The exhibition , and the book, contain the evidence of this elusive movement, linked to unexpected locales.
The perception of the work changes constantly through an interaction with the surrounding landscape. The metamorphosis of matter, the relationship with light, shape and movement metaphorically reflects the singularity of the moment that takes us by surprise, becoming hard to pin down.
Basic and instinctive in expression and manufacture, the material links the work to the present and the archaic technique used recalls our origins.
His work stems from a physical and instinctive need to tackle territories and dimensions that are daunting for a single individual. His boundless talent leaves signs of his passage throughout the world, taking cities as places to investigate and, in consenting to the exchange, the photographs seize the moment and freeze time, bringing the interactive relationship between his work and the surrounding environment into the present.
His sensitivity clashes with the basic execution: the purpose is not the function, but the elimination of matter as such, letting the most profound essence of his work shine through, in contrast with his past, spent in a border zone where life teaches you to expect the unexpected, where peace and survival cannot be taken for granted. In this contortion of matter, this archaic way of creating, there is a beautiful dream of hope, which in the end reveals a reality that is impalpable physically where metal becomes light and transparent and everything is suffused by reflected light, until it discloses its purest and deepest esthetic essence.
