Maya Bloch

Bloch's paintings, drawings and works on paper examine themes of estrangement and memory through abstracted figuration. Through the interplay of shape and line, abstraction and representation, her work evokes a sense of dislocation and disquiet. Bloch describes her subjects as "passive;" in an "intermediate status--a state of waiting."

Maya Bloch was born in Be'er Sheva, Israel in 1978, and currently lives and works in Tel Aviv. She holds a B.A. and an M.A. from Tel Aviv University, and has had solo exhibitions at the Haifa Museum of Art, Tavi Dresdner Gallery,Tel Aviv, and Thierry Goldberg Projects, New York. Her work was also included in group exhibitions at ST-ART residence; The Nechushtan Complex; Golconda Gallery; P8 Gallery; and Tavi Dresdner Gallery; all in Tel Aviv, Israel.
