Abstract Epoxy Jerusalem Variation

Orli Ziv is a vibrant and multi-talented French artist. Born in 1960 , she is the daugther of child survivors who had gone into hiding in France during WWll.
Her parents raised her with the love of art , and she was lucky enought to grow up and study in Paris , giving her a taste and an eye for aesthetics.
Orli has resided just outside Jerusalem for over 25 years.
Her first paintings were naive-oriental, impressionist landscapes. Over the years , she has developed an abstract style using a palette knife to record the traces of her lyrical gestures.
As she explains , " I find abstract art very appealing because it imposes no limits."
Orli lets matter and color talk to her , and carry her as if a surfer on a wave. She likens painting to a Jazz improvisation and she has played saxophone for a few years with that same sensibility.
" Each painting tells a story and moves only a limited number of people in the same way a book or a song does."
After severals years of experimenting with mixing pigments and oil or acrylic binders , Orli has found a very personal technique.Her paintings have touched many souls with her deep , vibrant colors ,depicting the silhouette of Jerusalem.One can envision them bringing viewers to that most special city , infused with holiness and depth.
Echoes of that energy resound in the pulsating colors and rhythms of her abstract work as well , providing the spiritual quality that pervades every painting.
