Orly Maiberg

 

Orly Maiberg was born in 1958 in Tel Aviv, where she lives and works.

 

Orly Maiberg has developed a unique outlook on nature, urban nature, as well as on the human figure in its intimate, close surroundings (the realm of the private). The paintings are well anchored in the physical nature of artistic creation, manifested in the strong sense of a physicality confronted with the canvas, and in the repetitive gesture. While each painterly gesture remains distinct at the same time it is also embedded, inseparable from the entire surface. Maiberg’s paintings examine the boundaries between truth and illusion, the internal and external, dreams and reality, portraits and landscapes.

 

Orly Maiberg paintings correspond to one of the directions in contemporary discourse preoccupied with images of reality. Maiberg uses photography as a source material for her paintings: she takes color photos and then uses a black and white photocopier, selects and isolates a frame, a composition and limits. The connection between photography and painting takes the forefront, as she examines the space between life and art, the space where everyday activity turns into an act of art, in and of itself.

 

With her last series White Ink Maiberg has expanded her artistic practice in a series of prints. The process began with drawing in a notebook with watercolor and ink. With a complete dedication to the daily practice, the act of drawing became supposedly automatic, removed from thinking or drawing conclusions. The figures depicted in the drawings underwent a process of abstraction that revealed a lack of physical perfection, vulnerability, and deformity. This series attests to the ongoing process of the artist’s dilemmas concerning the body’s durability versus its vulnerability and even its demise.

 

Orly Maiberg studied at the California College of Arts and Crafts, San Francisco, (1979), at the New York School of Visual Arts (1980),  Andy Warhol Studio, New York, (1983-84), and holds a BFA from  the NY School of Visual Arts in the Skohegen Program.

 

Orly Maiberg has had solo exhibitions at the Museum of Israeli Art, Ramat Gan and at Galerie O Ahlers, Gottingen, Germany. Her works were featured in numerous group exhibitions such as Looking Ahead, San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art, California in 2000; Art Forum Berlin in 2004/05 and 2006; Fiac, Cour Carree du Louvre, Paris in 2006; Tel Aviv Museum of Art in 2009; The Israel Museum, Jerusalem in 2007; and Haifa Museum of Art in 2014.
