THE FACES OF ARTIST PROJECT TORONTO 2013: Nissim Ben Aderet

I focus on a continuous line that I choreograph the dance of life for.

“In one line, Nissim draws an entire world of human images that move through imagined space and that create the infinite motion of relationships and hierarchies amongst themselves. On one hand, more is hidden from the view than is revealed to him. On the other hand, viewing the work means rummaging through the depths of the soul that emerge from the images.”

I am an expressive artist, I use a technique of action painting. With this technique I don’t plan the idea beforehand. I draw free from logic.

I draw a single line that creates a world of human texture. In one motion, I form my sketch.

The figures move in an empty space and form an endless motion amongst themselves.

When viewers look at my artwork, they can understand my thoughts and read my story between the lines. This story is built upon harmony, balance, dependency, longing / nostaligia.

All of my work talks about the relationships between people. If you follow a line closely
you will discover an entire world of figures that connect with each other.
