"I was fortunate enough to see Ariela Abrahamson’s work “Object”, at “Quest”, the annual exhibition of the Ceramic Association of Israel at Beit Binyamini. An impressive achievement in every sense.
In addition to the astonishment awoken by the work because of its size and the high level of craftsmanship shown in its implementation, it is both moving and thought-provoking.
Ariela succeeds in demonstrating deep humanity and tenderness by means of her work with clay. The full control of her artist’s hand is most evident.
The fact that she chooses to express themes of an activist nature that are close to her heart and yet to preserve a high level of artistic quality, makes for an important and significant merging of both fields. Social and artistic."
Multi-faceted Creative Artist
"The face of “object” looking upwards, as if searching for something – perhaps for that same proud, strong bull, the model of the ancient mediterranean statuette after which it was created – represents for me what is heart-rending in Ariela’s work: by means of the irreparable schism between the ancient, eternal force, radiated by ”object’s” body, and its helplessness as indicated by the open jaws with their inarticulate cry and its blind eyes, Ariela has succeeded in creating, at one and the same time, a unique individual as well as a symbol of something broader – the great tragedy of the animals."
