An episode from a series of interviews with artists, produced by the Israel Film Service in collaboration with the Israeli Council of Culture and Art.
In Miriam Cabessa’s painting studio, there is one tool notably absent: a brush. In its place, the artist uses squeegees, rags, trash cans, coins, stamps, and even her own body to create marks on the canvas. Why does she do this? One of the reasons, according to her, is that it’s a quicker painting method that suits the pace of the modern world.
In this interview with Meni Pe’er, the artist discusses her painting career. Among other things, Cabessa recalls how at the age of six, she vowed to become a painter and explains why she rejects the label of her work as “women’s art.”
