12th – 22nd October, 2023 | 11am – 7pm | Bikaner House, New Delhi
World-renowned New York-based Israeli painter Yigal Ozeri’s first solo exhibition comes to India. Titled ‘My Territory’, it embodies a retrospective character serving as a compilation of his most significant four series from the past decade.
The exhibition will feature artworks that have not been unveiled elsewhere before, alongside significant fresh creations, including a selection of large-scale installations. With over 25 paintings on display the focus will be on the ideas of people, nature, cities, and moments that the artist has experienced and witnessed himself.
The exhibition is Ozeri’s search for his own personal history through the traces of his painting style. The highlight of this exhibition is a new series of five paintings depicting Delhi. These pieces were specially created for this exhibition. The paintings are hyper-real, figurative images that document contemporary street life of the capital city of India.
The exhibition will also feature a body of work focused on beautiful women amid vast landscapes. The paintings interweave the illusion of the dreamlike, cinematic world of pictorial realism (paintings such as “Shely in the Water” and “Priscilla in Ecstasy” from “The Women in Nature” series), that Ozeri has exhibited internationally over the past decade. There will be over 10 paintings from the latest series “A New York Story” and “Americana” that represent the recent shift in the artist’s work, with the focus on revealing the urban dynamics of the metropolitan city of New York.
‘The Territory’ is organized by Bruno Art Group and supported by The Embassy of Israel in India.
