Shaike Snir is an Israeli-Australian artist and printmaker. His work evokes a multiplicity of histories: Australian, Aboriginal, Jewish and personal. In ‘Jerusalem in the Kimberleys II: A Story by L J Borges… to Lin Onus’, there are references to Australia’s awe-inspiring Kimberleys region, the Argentinian mystic and writer Jorge Luis Borges, and Lin Onus, an esteemed Yorta Yorta artist. Born to an Aboriginal father and Scottish mother, Onus’s work often deals with the dislocation he felt caught worlds.
There is much to uncover in Snir’s work. This is not a single experience nor a single idea, but rather a testament to the spectrum of influences that colour our world view. For collectors of prints and socially conscious art, this work offers a wealth of perspectives.
