Gal Weinstein’s works
can be distinguished by the artist’s great skill and the use of heterogeneous materials, from wood to porcelain, from wax to polystyrene and steel filaments. It is precisely the simplicity of the materials from which the work is made contrasts with the significance of the themes and the images selected and with the rigor discernible in the design and realization.
The discrepancy gives rise, in Weinstein’s work, to short-circuits of meaning and raises questions about the relations that can exist ‘between interpretation and experience, between expression and opinion’.
Only by dealing with the complexity of the present and taking responsibility for the problems, the uncertainties, the diverging expectations and the dilemmas that society presents to each one of us is it possible, according to Gal Weinstein, to avoid cultural catastrophe.
