Vered Nachmani


Vered Nachmani born 1971, Kibbutz Givat Haim, Israel. Lives and works in Kfar Hogla, Israel. Combining abstraction and representation, Vered Nachmani produces paintings that are paradoxically dreamlike and photorealistic. She chooses nature, her home and backyard, her family, and childhood memories as her subject matter. Often working from photographs, Nachmani remains faithful to the source image while taking interpretive liberties: her brushstrokes are expressive; she allows rivulets of paint to run down her canvas; she leaves sections of the canvas blank; she combines multiple points-of-view; and, in some of her works, Nachmani builds up layers of disparate images.

Vered Nachmani had numerous exhibitions, among others, in the Israel Museum, Mishkan Museum of Art (Ein Harod), Haifa Museum of Art, the Negev Museum of Art (Be’er Sheva), Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art. She has won the Prize for a Young Artist, Ministry of Culture of Israel in 2003.
