Shahar YahalomTel Aviv, Israel
Shahar Yahalom's work deals with the fundamental principles of art, such as image, material, shape, color, and size, as well as expression in various media like sculpture, drawing, photography, video, and sound or silence. Yahalom uses the most easily accessible and often simple materials. Consequently, objects from the workshop often coexist with elements of personal, everyday life that have undergone slight adaptations. These objects take the viewer’s consciousness to faraway places filled with dream-like, fantastic, and romantic experiences. Yahalom sharpens the traits of her works by seamlessly combining sculpture and drawing, by drawing closer to the monochromatic color range of blacks and whites, and through her use of gothic, landscape, and aquatic images.
Shahar Yahalom's work has been displayed in solo exhibitions including The City Gate, Herzliya Biennale in 2009 and The Raspberry Land Shortlist Exhibition, Israeli Art Prize 2011, Nathan Gottesdiener Foundation, Tel Aviv Museum of Art. Recent group exhibitions include The University Gallery, Tel Aviv University in 2007; The Michael Adler Collection and Israeli Post-Minimalism in the 70s and in Contemporary Art, Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art in 2009; and ART TLV 2009, Tel Aviv. Yahalom has received numerous awards including the America Israel Cultural Foundation Scholarship in 2006-2007.
