Lot 39 - Noa Weintraub - Untitled (Crochet and Lips)
Watercolour on Paper
A6 (10x15cm) Original Artwork
Signed on Verso
Noa Weintraub is a London based artist working predominantly in ceramics.
With a background in Fine Art and fashion, Noa interweaves these two worlds together and creates objects that not only celebrate her passion for decoration but also for history and textiles.
Her large vessels are elaborately decorated with hand-painted designs featuring lace, crochet and flower motifs. The starting point of each lace pattern depicted, is an old Master's portrait of a female sitter. A detail from a cuff, collar or hem, is transformed and adapted onto the ceramic vessel. Playing around with different influences and time periods have always provided a backdrop to her ideas.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
The watercolour paintings submitted are a continuum of my ceramic practice which is heavily influenced by textiles, lace and crochet. I was interested in representing one of my mini pots next to floating pom-poms and a lace/crochet background. Exploring Surrealist ideas. In addition to this - floating lips reminiscent of Man Ray's A l'heure de l'observatoire: les amoureux, are too suspended in mid air with a crochet backdrop. Ideas of femininity, and considered female pursuits are recurring themes in my work.
