notes: “Eliaz Slonim’s “Heads series” initiates a new period in his oeuvre. He works with new forms, draws inspiration from new discoveries: his colors become dark and heavy. But he doesn’t abandon his artistic stance: there is a continuity in Slonim’s work. A new dimension is added. The humanized, lively-looking doll heads are synonymous with suffering and hope. Colors and forms contribute to a graphical recognition of the scene. If bodies are portrayed, they are portrayed mostly in an embryonic phase. For this process based approach he sometimes uses photographs, reworking and painting them over, creating icons of a threatened, threatening time”. (Gabriele Muschter).
