Orna Bromberg


Orna Bromberg born 1955, Tel Aviv, Israel. Lives and works in Israel. For Bromberg the paintings are a story; a story with no plot, which unfolds through the minor variations occurring between one work and the next in an endless chain. The painting process resembles that of writing a diary. In her works a congealing of a childhood moment repeats itself constantly, and is expressed in the use of a small group of images in many different methods and contexts; the girl with the matchstick legs, fish, flowers and prey birds. Her choice of a seemingly naïve and ‘childish’ style of painting holds a struggle with terrifying nightmarish themes.
Bromberg showed her first solo exhibition at the Dvir Gallery in 1985, followed by further exhibitions at the gallery over the years. She participated in group exhibitions at the Eretz Israel Museum, the Haifa Museum, and the Tel Aviv Museum, among others.
