Enigmatic narratives of spaces and objects that relate to a home or part of a house are portrayed as temporary and unstable in the paintings of Shira Avidor. Her room interiors, cots, tents, mattresses, rugs, bowls, and various objects found in a dwelling show traces of a human presence echo an isolated and uncomfortable place. Both beautiful and quiet, Avidor’s work provokes contemplation of our own spaces.
