Although Mika Drimer’s sculptural dresses lack the human body, they have no shortage of vitality, grace and content. They’re rich in style and color, Renaissance luxury and extreme ornamentation of the Baroque and Rococo periods. Though sculpted from ceramic material, Mika Drimer’s dresses have properties of fabrics, such as softness, flexibility and motion. A sensory experience awaits the viewer: the dresses are asking to be touched and caressed, each detail and every fold inspected. Though made of rigid material, they convey a sense of lightness. Each piece is unique, produced by the artist’s own methods. She forgoes sketches and measurements and has no fear of making mistakes. Her intuition and aesthetic sense are highly developed. Using techniques and concepts from the world of textiles, she has “sewn” a high-class wardrobe. After covering the material until it takes on the desired flexibility, she designs the “ceramic fabric” and adds color and shape to turn into a garment – the fruit of her wildest dreams. Every stitch, crease, and fold, every thread and button , receive the personal touch-a touch that gives a piece its own unique personality. The dresses conceal identities created from a combination of color, form and texture. These personalities are developed in the minds of its viewers, based on their memories, their past, their aspirations, and their desires. The contrast in Mika Drimer’s works are vivid: soft-hard, colorful-monochromatic, tangible-vacant, dynamic-static, They add a dramatic dimension to the enjoyable experience of viewing the works. The observer may get the impression that at any moment they will wake up and break out in a dance-ballroom style, as in the Italian palaces of centuries gone by. Mika Drimer was born in Israel, 1953.
