Liat Livni

“In general, my art examines the relationships between nature and the urban environment; specifically relationships between landscapes and architecture, arts and crafts, and what is man-made versus what is machine-made. Through continuous exploration in residencies around the world, I specialize in using local materials and dynamic sources for inspiration . . .With meticulous manual work, I create images that are full of formative and cultural contrasts. Emptied of its realistic volume, the image creates an iconic language that unites the different layers. Like a culture alchemist who fuses art with life, works with everyday materials, and brings together seemingly distant cultures.”
