Gilad Efrat

Gilad Efrat creates each painting using a subtractive technique that he executes with near mechanical precision. To begin he covers a canvas with one or more background colors. The artist then coats these tones with a dark top layer of oil paint. Working in a grid with reference to his source photography, he meticulously removes the dark layer square-by-square using tools such as rags and Q-tips. This processing of the image by hand produces a soft focus haze, with the final picture looking somewhere between an indexical document and a mental recollection.


Efrathas been included in numerous group and solo exhibitions in Europe, the US and Israel, including Inman Gallery, Houston, Dan Gallery, Tel Aviv, Israel, Museum of Art, Ein Harod, Israel, Noga Gallery of Contemporary Art, Tel-Aviv, Israel, Oredaria Gallery of Contemporary Art, Rome, Italy, North Gallery, Copenhagen, Denmark and Herzliya Museum of Art, Herzliya, Israel. He is currently a Senior Lecturer at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design, Ramat Gan, Israel.
