“Our lives are made up of a puzzle, where we try to fit the pieces into frames.
At the macro level, we live under unstable governments, a collapsing economy, an energy, and climate crisis. Unknown diseases and viruses that attack us. At the micro level, loss of values, loneliness, and soon a shortage of oil to heat homes and workplaces. Genetically engineering food and its DNA will inevitably change us too. With the disintegration of the frames of our lives, and in an attempt to live sanely, we choose how to look at our lives in a specific prism and see the moments of happiness.”
Ariela Wertheimer – a multidisciplinary artist: Ariela was born in Israel in 1957. Lives and works in Israel and has been drawing and photographing for the past 30 years.
