BIOGRAPHY

In her work, Ariel Katzir examines the illusion of beauty. Graduating with a diploma of fashion and textiles has evidently influenced Ariel’s work where she explores the facets of beauty and challenges the view that the lines on one’s face do not fit traditional ideals of the construct, instead she maintains they are underappreciated.

Intrigued by uniform lines and geometry, her current body of work displays illustrative elements that play with these elements.  Using dark ink juxtaposed with vibrant acrylics, Ariel aims to find balance between the two mediums and then project this harmony onto her canvas or board. Through her artistic creations, she embellishes her current obsession, however central to her exploration is always thematic play with portraiture and human form.
