New Members 2019
Abisdris Korin, Oren Matia
Curator: Gordon Irena
7 Sep — 9 November, 2019
It is an established tradition at the Artists’ House to open the year’s exhibition season with a show by the newest members of The Jerusalem Artists’ Association. Two artists has joined this year: Korin Abisdris and Matia Oren.
Korin Abisdris is an interdisciplinary artist who addresses the self-portrait as a fluid image. Her oeuvre consists primarily of quick illustrative paintings/drawings in which she culls from the stream of images flooding our present in the social networks such as Facebook and Instagram, mobile phones, television, and cinema.
Matia Oren‘s works refuse to be fixed in a single state, conducting a constant struggle with the possibility of giving a solid visual form to human existence, which is “condemned” to be free. They constantly shift between abstraction and figuration, reflecting the eternal transitions experienced by our consciousness. The excess in Matia Oren’s paintings is an existentialist expression of being. Mind and body erupt onto the canvases in a whirlwind of dense color applications, from which a living portrait crystallizes, variable and restless.
