Sep. 1- 30, 2021

Zemack is happy to have Maya Gold join the family.  To welcome her to the gallery, we will present an “introductory exhibition” during the month of September. The exhibition will feature works of art from various series created between the years 2001-2021.

The exhibition will be open to the public from September 1 to the 30th – without an opening event.  The exhibition will be accompanied by meetings with the artist, where Gold will discuss her sources of inspiration, the creative process, and the development of her various series over the years.

Details about the meetings will be provided soon.

Maya Gold (Born 1978, Jerusalem)
Lives and works in Tel Aviv and Brussels.

Maya Gold is a graduate of the MFA program at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Jerusalem, where she also holds a teaching position. Gold is an acclaimed artist in the contemporary art scene in Israel and has shown several solo exhibitions, in Israel and abroad, including at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art.

Gold’s latest solo exhibition “Threads” was held at the Inga Gallery, Tel Aviv (2020). Gold has been awarded various prizes and grants including the Young Artists Award of the Israeli Ministry of Culture (2014) and her works have been acquired by museums and collectors worldwide.

Gold’s paintings seem to possess a strong regard for realism, yet they also raise questions about painting itself and its history, from modernist abstraction in painting to the Romantic Tradition. She sets in motion the construction and deconstruction of an illusory space, distortions of scale, and multiple perspectives. Gold’s images occupy a dual state: they unfold a concurrent process of zooming in and out, enlargement and miniaturization, causing an unstable perspective. The work results in a discourse which goes beyond mere formalism, touching upon issues of identity and place, the individual painting becomes an open arena of change, of constant transformation.
