KooKoo is proud to present the artist of realism Doron Wolf, a fine and hard-working Haifa artist who plays light games with the viewer. His works are high quality and impressive. Influences from the art world are evident in his paintings. Doron is an art lecturer at the Haifa Museum of Art, Oranim College and Safed College. Last year, Doron presented a solo exhibition called "Dazzling" at Kibbutz Ramot Menashe and participated in a variety of exhibitions in Israel and the United States from 2008 until today. Meet.

'' My painting connects fragments of art history with biographical themes and clues from my personal life. In the works I raise questions about the original and the copy, about the tension created between fast photography and lingering and slow painting. Through these questions, I look at the contemporary lifestyle from segments of personal life observation and critically examine the changing environment.

The pictorial language of my works is of figurative painting in classical materials of oil on canvas. The course of the work is in a slow, laborious, and meticulous painting done with small brushes in front of the sources of inspiration that are created from a pictorial connection of a number of images that were taken quickly, "Snap Shot", via the "smartphone". During the painting I combine these images into one composition and try to create an aesthetic and seductive painting.

The works depict situations of people, animals and objects in banal and everyday scenes, where light exposure characteristics that distort the image, create drama and resonate with a painting from the past. In my paintings I correspond with a Dutch painting of "Vanitas" paintings and 17th century interior paintings. The spaces I paint are home and personal spaces or public and museum spaces.

As mentioned, light is a significant element in my work. I look for lighting modes where there is excess or lack of light, in a way that blinds the vision. The source of light in my body of work comes from electrical products, a computer, a cell phone, the light of the camera flash that illuminates an image and burns it as one or the bright light of a window in burning Israeli daylight.

A central image in my works is the mirror which is also found in some of the works I quote: "Arnolfini Marriage", Meninas Las and more, the reflections of parts of these works in the mirror create an endless thread of the image, thus reinforcing questions about origin and copy.

The resulting painting reflects the gap between photography and painting, between the documentation of a quick moment and its lingering and prolonged examination. He wonders about the tension between sight and blindness, reflection and transparency, dazzle and jitter, imprisonment and imprisonment, life and death. ''
