Noa Charuvi

Artist's Website

Noa Charuvi gathers photographs from news sources as her point of departure. Using paint on canvas, she deconstructs photojournalistic moments to work through questions of nationality and identity. By eliminating almost all figures in her painterly interpretation, she abstracts and distills images to examine disappearance and displacement in a broader context. In this way, her investigation travels from the personal to the universal. With deliberate and flat brushstrokes, the artist manipulates form and color, breaking down specificity of person, place and thing. What remains are emotions and sensations of anonymity and isolation.
