ZK Gallery presents Yigal Ozeri, Israeli-born, New York-based hyperrealist painter. Ozeri exhibits predominantly in New York and Israel, but his work has been shown worldwide. This exhibition reveals his calibrated balance between the romantic and sexual. Ozeri rejected painting professional models, with bodies close to perfection, and instead opted to focus on people in their natural environments.
His models assume poses and facial expressions reminiscent to those of respected master painters, yet are placed in contemporary environments. The tension he ignites in his subjects combined with carefully considered compositions magnifies their presence and expression.
Opening Reception – Thursday, July 24th at 6:00pm – 9:00pm
