Sheera attempts to represent an entire universe of objects and characters starting with photographs of people or landscapes, to which she adds an extra dimension by painting or drawing. It is obvious that the characters are not where they should be, but in a perpetual movement, in a search connecting concepts of time, memory, identity of the culture and space.

This Thursday, July 28th, the artist, together with the “Don’t Touch My Anxiety” group, to which she belong, will be opening an exhibition organized at the Central Gallery, in Tel Aviv. The burst of marginalization and social truths exists in this space that makes room for anxiety; through their creation, the artists express the difficulty and the misery, the silent existence, so easy to ignore.
