“I live and work in Tel Aviv, I am in constant dialogue with the city, absorbing its atmosphere. I observe the city and try to understand the inner laws of its structure, which (among other signs) manifest themselves in the visual rhythm of lines. From my point of view, it can be compared to the lines drawn by a seismograph – unstable, unstructured, reflecting the change inherent in our existence, and foreshadowing profound changes, the meaning of which we do not yet understand. But colours, being dynamic in nature, do not change their character. They convey the essence of any object – a house, a street, a person or the city itself,” says Aron Kravits.
Aron Kravits has devoted a series of works to Tel Aviv’s architecture, Bauhaus, and is currently working on a new series, Immersed, in which people become part of the space – their inner processes are inseparable from the changes in their surroundings.
“In this case, the setting is not necessarily Tel Aviv, but it is still subject to the same laws of colour, line and object relations. In an attempt to understand them and their interrelationships, I am using the methods I have discovered to explore this theme,” says the artist.
