Dror Ben Ami//דרור בן עמי
3 Shvil Hamifal street, Second Floor
Ben-Ami chooses to work with very vulnerable paper which he perforates, punctures, covers with layers of charcoal, and erases. Thus he obtains a fine line reminiscent of etching” (from Shir Meller-Yamaguchi’s catalog article for Sketches of Time).
Dror Ben-Ami’s themes are atemporal and borderless – life and death, materiality and decomposition, beauty and the void.
The painterly experience is severed from the experience of the here and now, floating between the conscious level and the unconscious.
