META

Using himself as a conduit Nachum blindfolded himself for a period of 7 consecutive days. During this period he conducted a series of interviews with people who are blind. As he listened he revisited techniques known as automatic drawing and writing to allow him express his subconscious. The result, a series of representational paintings which transform wild animal specimens to give them new life and new form. The works explore the boundaries between stillness and motion and mortality and aliveness. The dictionary definition of the animal executed in oil is sculpted in Braille onto canvas, a philosophical paradox to the complexity of the painting and to the contextual process.
