Gila Greenfield

Greenfield creates mainly paintings and collages focusing on interior spaces and the absence or presence of human figures in them. She paints rooms being inspired by looking at 1950s and 60s European design magazines and inspired by local photos which she takes in museums, galleries and abandoned houses in Israel.
For Greenfield, the self-portrait is a “snapshot” to her life. The motif of the woman as a symbol of power and beauty repeats in her work. Her gender at times indistinct and open to interpretations.
Her work moves between complex abundance and abstract materialism and the tension between the aesthetic and the crumbling, the seductive and the abandoned, the bourgeois and the alternative.
