Gilad Ophir creates boldly expressive pictures. He distills memories and experiences as well as found references into semi-abstract and abstract images. Ophir explores themes ranging from the effects of the surfaces and textures surrounding him, to the sensuous appeal of mundane sights. In his compositions, he foregrounds the process of photo-based image-making and its material qualities. The new works by Gilad Ophir show semiotic play between image and process that incorporates gestural textures and forms that seem to be derived from imaginary models.
