Oil on panel
About the Artist
Gal Schindler (b.1993, Israel) works into wet layers of oil paint with a gesture that’s both sharp and fluid, revealing figures in between the back and front of the slick surface. Schindler’s figures are not depicted on the canvas, but rather embody the painting itself. With contorted poses that fill the canvas, the line of the figure breaks up and melts into the background, with prominent eyes that glare back at the viewer. Referencing ancient middle-eastern symbols and modern female writings, she delves into the gaps within visual and verbal language. Gal lives and works in London, UK.
