Inspired by myth, literature and film imagery, Shira Glezerman‘s compositions are often both dreamlike and disturbing. Her highly staged works display an intense dialogue with art history as well as pop culture and current events. She started with virtuoso paintings and drawings, but her latest works focus on a paper cut technique in which she creates a combination of solemn characters, frail animals and melancholic situations. These subjects lend her curious narratives an ambiguous character: awkward, yet full of compassion. She reduces the image to a minimalistic line which emphasizes the potency and universality of the story.
Glezerman holds a BFA from Bezalel and an MA in Ancient Art, Greek Theater and Mythology from Tel Aviv University.
