Sapir Gal


גל, מצב סחיטה, 2020, שמן על בד, 170 על 170 ס''מ

Sapir Gal (Jerusalem, 1989) lives and works in Tel-Aviv.

Thinking about human life as a disposable subjective biological existence going through transformation to an object in the contemporary era were society obsessive eye is present in any given time, I form a series of paintings - including repeated themes of phenomenas and social practices, rituals, aesthetic, western white grasp, objects as chattels and portraits.

The medium she uses, oil on canvas, mainly traditional, essentially organic and limited on time.
However, thinking about 'painting' as an independent body, which is destined for long lasting biodegradation process.

In the painting she references the photographic medium and quote forms that are accessible and immediate of the photograph such as mobile apps on smartphones: The image that is been used in my paintings is one of her own production, direction or taken from the media to be edited bluntly. The finished image as it appears in the painting can't be seen not from the human eye and rather not from a camera lens, but trough filtration process and transformation of reality.
