While only three months into 2011, Israeli artist Yigal Ozeri has taken the new year by storm. Following his 2010 solo show with the gallery, Ozeri’s Lizzie Jagger series was selected as Artefiera 2011‘s feature exhibition, presented in conjunction with Visionnaire and Galerie Dukan&Hourdequin in Bologna, Italy this February. Entitled Luce Silenziosa (Silent Night), Ozeri’s solo show brought a wealth of astonishing photorealism to the city’s rustic, religious context, resulting in a beautiful juxtaposition of the city’s historic structures and his earthy, neo-Renaissance portraits.
Up next is this April’s “American Friends of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art’s” Annual Gala, where one of Ozeri’s works will be included in the charity art auction. The event will be held at the Pierre Hotel in NYC, with proceeds directly benefiting the Israeli museum. Additional information can be found at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art’s website.
