A viewing of Hagit Barkai's new exhibit at Davidson College's Van Every Gallery conjures a sense of uneasiness. The mostly nude figures - with faces somewhat blurred - convey feelings of vulnerability, apprehensiveness and disarray through the canvasses they embody. Barkai, born and raised in Israel, currently works as an assistant professor of art at Davidson College. She draws influence for her art from war-torn Israel and from body images.
