Unfortunately this is a misleading title, as we never really had the chance to even ask a single question to Miss Peacock Lady, known for her glacial voice, futuristic sounds… and pompous outfits.
Lady Peacock, like lady bla bla are representatives of modern extravaganza, and Sharona Eliassaf is much of an expert at representing these yobby artists. It could be lady gaga, the same way it could be a rock star from the 80s, always flashy, always surreal… always artificial.
Because not only lights and shadows don’t seem natural in Eliassaf’s paintings, they belong to another era, maybe a parallel universe… maybe that of He-Man, because as you probably know there are many other universes, is just that we can’t see them, but they exist, and Sharona gets a sneak peak from time to time before capturing those moments in her NY studio.
The half-American, half-Israeli artist had her first NY museum exhibition earlier this year @ Queens International, and her 2012 piece “Courtship during an earthquake” is currently competing @ Saatchi’s latest on-line showdown. We really hope her subtle sexual intercourse representation grabs many votes…. earthquakes have these things, it’s inevitable.
