Galia Pasternak combines in her artwork storytelling, writing, drawing, painting, ceramics and performance. Her work tells the story of herself as an artist, a mother and a daughter of an artist as well as a teacher. The dynamics, tensions, control conflicts and responsibility. Her artistic spirit is a bitter- sweet of a kind. Existential, dark humoured and explicit. Crafting paranoia narratives of haunted artists that face their fate.
