Yoni Gold // Michal Chelbin
Neta Gal-Atzmon and Revital Alcalay
Paintings by Yoni Gold (b.1974) subsist on the border between figurative and abstract painting. His artistic practice combines his awareness of the contemporary art discourse and his natural curiosity, aligned with a strong affinity to the local painting history- to Social Realism and Lyrical Abstraction.
Michal Chelbin’s works are saturated with mythological qualities, as well as a strong mysterious sensation. Her photographs are a combination of normal and eerie, familiar and unfamiliar, daily and divine, imagination and reality – all forming an ambiguous narrative and a sense of dissonance.
