Lust (Poetry Book paintings)


These series of paintings was exhibited as a solo show at Zadik Gallery, Tel-Aviv, alongside the erotic poetry of Aharon Shabtai. The paintings and the poems stand independently of each other yet provide parallel motifs that enrich one another.

The exhibition was accompanied by a re-release of Shabtai’s selected poems in a book titled “Lust” that included Hirschfeld’s works. Each piece is 28x28cm, pen and oil paint on paper, and was painted on top of scrap papers taken from Hirschfeld’s parents’ insurance business.

* All works oil and bail point pen on ready made paper 20/30 cm
