New series by Eliaz Slonim, 2018.
Two girls are posing meticulously, they are staring back at the observer with a blank expressions. These questionable lolitas with their bizarre beauty live in the gridlines of the laser carved board. These laser grids are the basis for the new series- a readymade platform. They are scrap boards from the next door laser cutting workshop. The wooden surfaces are used out completely,scarred by fire over and over again.
We live in a time where "laser" is often associated with beauty and esthetics,it's a technology used for the effects of smoothing and whitening but for this series the laser played an opposite role. Slashing and scorching the images with densely expressive cutting lines, almost like an unsolvable design plan.
