Tel Aviv based artist Guy Zagursky’s dynamic artistic process allows him to use a wide range of figurative and abstract references from diverse cultural fields – from literature to wrestling. He’s constantly experimenting and innovating with unique techniques such as applying embroidery on heavy metals; a practice that requires meticulous work and effort, emphasizing the contrast between the intense labor put into the sculptures and the light-as-air images placed on them. In this latest piece, Zagursky uses woodcarving to create his own take on the Yiddish proverb Der Mentsh Trakht un Got Lakht: Man Plans and God Laughs. In Zagursky’s version however, Man is the one doing the laughing.
