This is painting is a member of The FASTLANE series painted by the Israeli artist Irit Epstein in 2007 – Painting Oil on Canvas.
This series of paintings presents an artistic exploration of the hectic and pressured lifestyle often characterized by the loss of time and space.
The running figures suggest that women in modern urban life are powerful, active and fully engaged, yet lack the ability to pause.
The works ask how women can interact with their inner life while being in constant movement.
