Tova Pesah//טובה פסח
Tova Pesah works in her studio in Kiryat Hamelacha in Tel Aviv. Her work consists of various media:
drawing, painting, ready-made and collage, some of them three-dimensional. Over the years She has created a personal dictionary and iconography. Some of her pictures come from observation, especially photographs. Others are metaphoric metaphors, dealing with the image of man and animals. The content of her work is mainly associative and intuitive, which deals with psychological meanings.
her art has a therapeutic nature. It connects scenes from everyday life with fantasy, which extends from her subconscious, with a strong sense of emotional experience.
She deals with the subject of the animal as if it were her self-portrait. She lives with animals, they accompany me in my personal life as a family. She call them, there is a third language between her and the animals, yet there is something mysterious and unexpected about them. The relationship with the animal has always been therapeutic. Of all the animals the cat is closest to me because of its special qualities: independence, belligerence, precision in conveying messages. I am opposed to the animal's humanity, and it is important for her to study their particular "animal" personality. In addition to the image of the cat she dealt with right now, she deals with the image of the rabbit. The trigger in the image of the rabbit is its movement characteristic: the jump. A movement that symbolizes steps of a process.
