Orit Akta Hildesheim exhibits at Tel Aviv Museum

Orit Akta Hildesheim, Untitled,2012. Oil on canvas.

Orit Akta Hildesheim's (b. 1970) work, a harmony of gentle, transparent hues on an almost monochromatic scale, is made up of repetitive lines and tiny paint spots that combine into complex images. Her precise, introverted gaze focuses on the tension between the present and the absent and on layered surfaces that reveal esthetic and poetic complexity.

On show at the Tel Aviv Art Museum until 22 September.
