Lines and Borders


Graphic illustration style plays another roll in my artlife lately, rather than indicating clear, distinct lines and shapes, I turned it into an emotional tool.
My hand works systematically and mechanically, trying to define each dot, but at the same time, being dictated by my current emotional state.
By the disoriented and unbalanced perspective I try to achieve that blurriness and uncertainty between the lines and borders. When is it a line, and when is it a border?
I'm feeling this drawing system is quite like a therapy actually. It feels a bit like a psychological analysis. There's something relaxing in working on those fine details with your hand.
I might as well say these lines dictate a rhythm, almost like in music. If you're familiar with Thom Yorke, the most brilliant musician and his recent solo album "The Eraser", you might feel what I have experienced; an emotional distorted electronic music, definitely not an oxymoron.

Any thoughts about the not-so-cold graphic style that by its rough and sharp quality can arouse deep emotions?
I know I may sound too serious at this early hour of the day, but after listening to some wonderful inspiring music this morning, I really felt like sharing this series of sketches. You know I'd love to hear your opinions and thoughts about it.

Enjoy your Wednesday lovely people.

Tal Ahuva!

I just love it love it love!!!
You're again so full of surprises.
I saw the influence the music had on you yesterday, but only now I get a glimpse into your fruitful mind.
As I wrote, I just love your sketches. It's sooo deep- Minimalistic and yet so full of expression and emotions waiting to burst out, and still being kept hidden under the surface.
It's just like Thom's and Radiohead's music. Brilliant!

aimee said...

hila couldn't have said it better! your sketches are so full of soul and personal expression. they give us a peek into your thought process, yet they don't reveal everything. you tell just enough of the story to make us want to know more about what is going on in your head. i love art like that.

I've never thought before I'd be able to share all my thoughts, creations and private sketchbook scribbles with that many people...:) So thank you for that!

Krissy, what a compliment that is! listening to The Eraser and visualizing my drawings...thank you:D Coz Radiohead's music means so much to me.

Scatterbrain Tal said...

Oh and Jessie, Jess and Erin- are you serious about the selling thing?? lol Can't imagine me selling my drawings...it would feel like selling a part of me or my thoughts or something. haha
But anyway thank you, it's really sweet of you! I don't really think about it...
