Please view details of artwork “Woman in the market”.
Realistic painting of Jewish religious woman in the market. Zvi Malnovitzer brings attention to the fatigue and compassion. The artist is not using multicolored palette, he creates the image mostly with shades of beige and blue colors. Zvi Malnovitzer illuminates the art work by the combination of light reflections. Notably, the pose of the woman tells a lot about her story full of difficulties and challenges.
The hand of the heroine and her look are asking spectator for the support. Heavy bags are pulling her hand down, strapping her jacket and palm. Even though the face is depicted vague, viewers feel the glance and the mood of the woman.With her free hand, she seems to be pointing at spectators.
The expressive, psychologically dense and emotionally suggestive painting forms the spiritual space around the figure, in which the spectator enters.
