Yigal Ozeri – My New Home

Galerie Ernst Hilger, Vienna

until 28 August 2020

With A New York Story, Ozeri is now embarking on a new type of imagery. Influenced by the ideas and images captured by several contemporary street photographers, he has taken his figurative paintings in a decidedly urban direction and is looking at the spontaneous energy of New York Streetlife. He has walked around Chinatown, gone into the subways, entered barbershops and all sorts of stores, and has prowled around NYU with his camera in hand. Shaped by the ideas, lighting and compositions of Philip-Lorca di Corcia, Ozeri juxtaposed people and places that did not necessarily go together all the while, taking hundreds of pictures, not a single shot imagined worthy of a painting.
