As a multi media artist Dalia Ayalon Sinclair’s paintings and photographs bare ‘footprints’ of the sequences in her life.

Dalia Ayalon SInclair

As circumstances change she adopts new metaphors to encapsulate cherished memories of places and times gone by which represent conflicts of life and death, crossroads and naked vulnerability, void and renewal, growth and withering, rigidity and softness.

She sees her role as an artist to give prominence to often over looked everyday matters and to render their role in life.

Her work is a reflection of her hidden world in particularly her personal losses which she tries to overcome. Whilst dwelling in her own sanctuary she is constantly reminded of the fragility of life. In the ‘body of work’ for this exhibition she extends beyond the intimate and confined boundaries of self photographs and draws on her inner strength to engage in compositions which conceal and reveal mind over body.

In Dalia’s early works the leaves represented the people in her world. In Tic Tac Toe we see a vivid transformation between reality and imagination as we journey from the intimate ‘bathscape’ images into surreal landscapes in which her toes feature as trees, mountains and leaves.

She believes that the leaves that she captures in her photography and paintings or the ‘toes’ reflection in the bath, possess beauty, poetry, mysticism, yearning and dreams and are a testament to changing times.

Despite the apparent simplicity, as in the Tic Tac Toe game, she carefully analyses the many options to create‘winning’ images which are sensual, surprising, confronting and are associated with the complexities of her many roles in life.

Where there might be chaos or pain she still finds beauty and serenity and although life may be filled with complexities and constrains, it is how one deals with these which matters. The show will be officially opened on June 6 at 6pm.
