Bio

Oren Eliav (b. 1975, Israel) lives and works in Tel Aviv.

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.

Solo exhibitions of his work have been organized by Givon Gallery (2004, 2006, Tel Aviv), Ashdod Museum of Art (2010), Braverman Gallery (2010, 2012, Tel Aviv), Tel Aviv Museum of Art (2011), Suzanne Tarasieve Gallery (2016, Paris), and Israel Museum Jerusalem (2018).

Eliav is the recipient of America Israel Grant Award (2004), 2008 Ministry of Culture Award for Young Artist,  Encouragement Award by Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design (2008), Rappaport Prize for a Young Israeli Painter by the Tel Aviv Museum of Art (2010), Cité Internationale des Arts residency, (2013 Paris), Residency@Berlin, Schir – Art Concepts (2013, Berlin), Leipzig International Arts Program (2014), and 2017 Ministery of Culture and Sports Award.
