GIL SHACHAR's Education:

GIL SHACHAR's Interests & Activities:

Gil Shachar's sculptures maintain intricate relations with painting, due to different modes of existence. His sculptures look like images that have donned three-dimensionality and walked out of the painting, leaving the background behind. Thus they appear very lonely, withdrawn, delicate and vulnerable, soft-skinned, context-less; they are monolithic units which maintain no interrelations. At times, the memory of the flat square source is still imprinted in their form; their surface is generally painted, too; yet these are images that have detached themselves from the mirror, moving toward (a possibly dangerous) existence in the realm of the real. Absurdly, the reinforcement of existence brings them in contact with death, which is present in various forms in all the works.
