Love and Shadow

Love and Shadow  is an enchanting oil on canvas realized by the young Israeli artist  Orit Sharbat .

In excellent conditions,  signed  in white oil paint in capital letters on the lower left corner.

This original painting represents a romantic kiss between a young white lady and a black man. The woman is probably kissing and hugging a shadow, a memory, a lost lover, rather than a physical person.  As a matter of fact, the black man is almost indistinguishable from the black background from which he is emerging. He takes form in the woman's heart and mind as a mere black silhouette, meaningful of the fact that the memory of his true appearance may be fading away, but the memories of mutual fondness and loving gestures stay forever.

" Did you ever feel like you were kissing a shadow? " - Orit Sharbat

A very introspective artwork, representing human relations between men and women. For this reason, the title is Love and Shadows .

The colors are in strong contrast, while the brushstrokes look as if they were made rapidly.
