Oren Ben Moreh

 

Oren Ben Moreh was born in Israel in 1982. She lives and works in Tel Aviv.

 

Oren Ben Moreh’s interest lies in the fantasy-like aspect of the painting, in the way it functions as a universe of imaginary associations along with muted meanings: a screen of reflections where space, depth, and color are realized into an internal vitality. Paintings that, at the same time, reveal and hides it own internal process.

 

Her early series of paintings featured cinematic images which drew her attention for their fantasy and delusional aspects. Interested in the relationship between cinema and painting, she finds both enable illusory space, but the cinematic medium, as opposed to painting, provides movement and narrative. In her paintings one could find only traces and sparks of the cinematic experience: empty spaces before or after an event, portraits, abandoned landscapes and motives of plant life.

 

Her intention is not to reflect the reality or to be faithful to a particular image but to transfer her spiritual insights onto the rigidness of the oil pastels, as the form and content of the painting are strongly bound together.
The oil pastels and sticks paintings on paper create an intense and compressed surface, forming an atmosphere of mystique that emerges from the action of painting itself.

 

Ben Moreh creates the oil pastels to work in a manner resembling the process of sculpting. The outcome is very compress, sensual, and emotional, as the form and content of the painting are strongly bound together. In her recent series of paintings she used repeated strokes of oil paint. The works’ subject matter and the technique in which the paintings were executed complement and emphasize one another

 

Oren Ben Moreh participated in solo and group exhibitions, including Five Young Artists, Artists Studios, Tel Aviv in 2008; Fresh Paint Art Fair for Israeli Contemporary Art, Tel Aviv in 2009 and 2010; and Italy – Israel, Senses of the Mediterranean, Hangar Biocca, Milan in 2011.

 

Ben Moreh has been awarded the Excellence in the Arts Award by HaMidrasha School of Art, Beit Berl College.
