Bio

Oren Eliav (b. 1975, Israel) lives and works in Tel Aviv. He received his BFA in 2005 and his MFA in 2009 from Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem.

Eliav’s paintings are concerned with the mental and physical relationship between viewer and painting. Examining religious imagery and optical phenomena through painting, Eliav exposes the complex relationship between seeing and believing. By employing  various visual manipulations such as reflections, shifts in scale,  breaks in composition, mirror images, multiple perspectives, and so on, his works present themselves as a mirage-like territory where cultural knowledge and the physical act of seeing compete for a place in the viewer’s mind.  As such, they are able to encompass both illusion and disillusionment.

Eliav has participated in solo exhibitions at Givon Gallery (2004, 2006, Tel Aviv), Ashdod Museum of Art (2010, Ashdod), Braverman Gallery (2010, 2012, Tel Aviv), Tel Aviv Museum of Art (2011, Tel Aviv), Suzanne Tarasieve Gallery (2016, Paris), and Israel Museum Jerusalem (2018, Jerusalem).
