Yehudit Sasportas


Israeli artist Yehudit Sasportas creates large drawings and room-sized installations that investigate dreamlike, generic landscapes that are combined with dense, repetitive lines. The images reference intense spaces that are universally familiar, yet non-specific, creating a context that all viewers can recognize. The lines create a space that depicts modernism through a mathematic, systematic method that contrasts the organic qualities of the landscapes. After her graduation from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem (1999), Sasportas exhibited with Galerie Eigen + Art in Berlin (2004), the Barbara Davis Gallery in Houston (2001), Deitch Projects in New York and the Berkley Museum of Art in San Francisco (2002). Sasportas was featured with the Valencia Biennial in 2001, and her work was reviewed in an article in ArtForum in 2003.
