MIRA HECHT, Knocking on the Moonlit Door, 2018 [Cover]

Mira Hecht Artist Statement “Spirit is a circle whose circumference is nowhere and whose center is everywhere”. – St. Augustine The circle is a vast and mysterious form filled with potential. It is the form of forms: the bearer of the dynamic unfolding of life. A signifier of organic life and the soul, each circle is hand drawn, perfect in its imperfection, inspiring me to try again. The straight line is representative of coordinates in space and universal energy. Color unfolds organically, without constraint, allowing every work in the series to have a feeling tone of it’s own. My process, a time consuming one, consists of layering opaque and transparent oil paint, wet onto dry. I use this process of layering, flatness of form and color to create a sense of depth, pattern and movement in the work. Inspired by my own contemplative practice and glimpses of perfection within the mind’s eye, each painting is meant to be a small gesture of exaltation, pointing to joy, connection and wholeness.
