ELIZAVETA MIRONOVA, ‘Elizabeth Babyn and Ester Pugliese at Loop’, ARTORONTO.CA, February 12, 2017
“Pugliese’s paintings take the viewer into a tranquil pleasure state…Orange, red, and purple hues are erupting in the background then covered with drawing to form something between a flower and a firework. It’s electrifying but the longer you look at it, the happier and more peaceful your mind becomes.” – Elizaveta Mironova

Jewish and Muslim women artists envision a Toronto where cultures consciously collide, differences do not divide, creativity and community-building thrive. Facilitated by noted printmaker, painter, fabric and book artist Rochelle Rubinstein, a diverse group of women with backgrounds in visual arts, textiles, creative writing, music, photography and more come together to create a collaborative installation informed by a process of shared study of foundational Muslim and Jewish texts and deep reflection on the relationship between gender, embodiment, creativity and identity in both communities. Women’s experiences of menstruation, breastfeeding and mourning in their traditions are central to the creation of Blood, Milk and Tears
