Shlomi Lellouche

Graduate of bachelor and masters programs at Oranim College. Had solo exhibitions at the Bar-David Museum of Art and Judaica and the Jerusalem Artists’ House. Participated in group exhibitions at Alfred Cooperative Institute for Art & Culture, the Tivon Library and Memorial Center and Zadik Gallery. A recipient of excellence awards during his studies.   Lellouche paints with almost no advance preparation, becoming a kind of “idea hunter” who captures the most interesting image he sees in the blink of an eye. The viewer is usually interested in the end result, but Lellouche as a painter is also interested in questions of color, levels of darkness and brightness, pictorial movement and formal harmony. Along with this prosaic, never-ending preoccupation, he also considers the conceptual aspect of painting. He knows very little about the final result of his painting and this is also the secret of its power. His multi-layered painting does not attempt to hide the traces of time and the long effort that went into the layers of paint, implying a slow and dedicated process. For him, this is an antithesis to parallel processes in the world that are synthetic and digital, and he himself turns to nature in an attempt to experience it better, open a window to reality and scratch it slightly. His paintings do not seek to beautify or flatter but rather to discover and understand, and in the process shed some empty shells and gather a life story.
