Research interests

The brushstroke— in its various manifestations— is the singular tool of communication that is encountered in paintings and drawings throughout all epochs, even as far back as prehistoric times. Liat Graver's primordial personal and artistic interest in undertaking this residency is to delve deeper into the study and exploration of the act of creating a painting, from the perspective of this most essential act— the process of making of a line— as opposed to the study of the painting itself— the artistic object.
