Gal Yerushalmi (1987) lives and works in Tel Aviv.
After a succesfull career as a professional ballet dancer, Gal turned to painting and sculpting.
In his paintings, lines, colours, textures and shapes interact in singular ways that do not conform to a specific, predetermined, or fixed aesthetic. As such, Gal devises his own language and shapes his own guidelines, which he continuously tests, re-examines, and expands upon throughout the execution of his paintings.
The grand dimensions of the canvases are an attempt to envelop the viewers directly into the scenes of the paintings, ultimately inviting them to explore the particular elements and intricacies of the pieces.
Gal’s three-dimensional works, which range from amorphous figures to more geometric structures, are raw in their nature and material composition. The sculptures are, nonetheless, emboldened with a sense of movement and dynamism as a result of the intentional repetition and specific positioning of their constituting elements.
Overall, Gal seeks to generate the physical engagement of the viewers as they develop a subjective experiential discourse with his works.
