Casablanca is a laser metal cut sculpture, hand painted in vivid and vibrant colors. As with all of Shemi’s works, it is done in bold vibrant colors that enhance nature rather than copy it. The metal cut adds volume and a three dimensional feel due to its multi-layers and bends, and the intentional shadows they create.

Shemi has acknowledged many influences in his art and his life; the dramatic colors of his childhood in Argentina, the sun-baked landscape of his home in Israel, the sensuous colorism of Matisse, the philosophies of his art teachers, and even the ritualistic symbols of the ancient past. His working method, which relies on the assistance of skilled artisans to execute much of the technical part of producing his works, affirms Shemi’s strong commitment to the communal ethic rooted in his experience on the Kibbutz.
