Art of Elisheva Nesis

 
For Elisheva Nesis, painting is her way of communicating with the world, her search for signs and mysteries in our lives. Her works depict unusual interactions between objects and people, as well as exploring the ‘boredom of normality and social aggression’. Her surrealist paintings border between symbolic expressionism and psychological symbolism.
