About the Artist
Yael Ben-Simon (b. 1985, Israel) is contemporary artist whose practice explores the relationship between propaganda, identity, magic and symbol making through painting. Her recent works examine the relationship of an individual narrativization through the object of the flag by way of investigative handling of materiality and techniques. Together with historical research, Yael's process in the studio is one of constant flow between manual and mechanical production, using 3D physics engine modeling software and a stencil maker. Yael lives and works in NYC, USA.
