About Vered Nachmani

Combining abstraction and representation, Vered Nachmani produces paintings that are paradoxically dreamlike and photorealistic. She chooses nature, her home and backyard, her family, and childhood memories as her subject matter. Often working from photographs, Nachmani remains faithful to the source image while taking interpretive liberties: her brushstrokes are expressive; she allows rivulets of paint to run down her canvas; she leaves sections of the canvas blank; she combines multiple points-of-view; and, in some of her works, she builds up layers of disparate images.
