I was looking through your gallery, again (I can't get enough, hehe!) and I was wondering if you would mind if i used some of your pieces for my art project, it is called LOVE, your style and work would be a beautiful addition to my unit, and i wanted to make sure you wouldn't mind..um, also if that is ok, which i hope it is, when referring to your name as the artist, should i call you zeruch or would you be able to give me your real name?
Oh yes ofcourse, sorry, I didn't explain very well...I'm doing A level Art at school and for our first two units we have to choose a subject we are interested in and passionate about to focus on, so I chose 'love' because it is something that effects me a lot and it is something that I think about a great deal (being an adolescent and all, hehe). I want to look at the intimacy of a relationship, that interconnectedness of two people, looking mostly at moments, certain gestures that others don't notice, a smile, hands held under the table, a kiss on the neck, very delicate, intimate things that make love between two people what it is. I hope to prduce a piece that shows that intimacy of two bodies, two minds, two souls. And as part of my unit I am required to have a critical link, so an artist that I have studied whose art pays relevance to my work in someway and that may influence my final piece. I am looking at other artists too but I would really love to include your art as a link if I may, your portrait work is so brilliant, the way you capture people, your use of materials, it is so original, I just think it would be such a valuable contribution to my unit. I really don't want to take your work in any way or anything like that, just to show work that has inspired me..in one unit last year I used Gustav Klimt and a german artist who's name I forget right now, hehe, and I examined their work and continued to develope my ideas considering the influences and effects of those artists on me and my work, and that's how your work would be used.
I hope that explains it all a little better than I did before, thank you for being interested,
