About The Art
“When two great forces oppose each other,
the victory will go
to the one that knows how to yield.”
From Verse 69 of the Tao Te Ching translated by Stephen Mitchell
About the Artist
Carmela is a graduate of the "Hamidrasha" Art School in Beit Berl College. Her paintings appear as sites prior to a disaster. Their color is demure and pastoral varying between grey-purples, creams, and beige. They appear very calm, perhaps too calm, Weiss locates figures in snow-bound sceneries, amongst slender, naked-toped trees. Occasionally, they seem human, portraying a singular appearance, sometimes they resemble monochrome shadows which indicate a present absentee, a human void. A sense of mystery and oppression creeps upon the observant viewer, and suddenly they are divulged as replete with distortions and delusive diversions. Weiss maneuvers between meticulous usages of thin accurate brushes to color spillages that alternate between spontaneity to moderated control. The tension between the line and the blot, and between the premeditated and the random, lends a dramatic flare of standing on the edge, of life on the verge of suspension.
Additional Print information
Our prints are museum quality prints, that use 100% archival rag paper and archival inks, resulting in beautiful prints with rich and vivid colors. All of our prints include a minimum border of 1" for easy framing. Photographs are printed on a thick, white, matte paper.
The dimensions listed are for the paper size and not the image itself, to give you a better understanding of how much space the print will take up when you hang it on your wall.
Our prints are professionally framed with wood mouldings, archival UV plexi-glass, and come ready to hang on your wall with a hanging wire. Prints can be framed with a 2.75" white mat, or without.
You can view frame dimensions here.
