Ayelet Carmi

Carmi was born in 1967 in Kibbutz Beit HaShita. She is a graduate of the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem. Her works are characterized by feminine figures in mythological settings, organic hybrids and evocative machinery. Based in traditional painterly technique, her works offer a complex take on the representational style of the Western tradition while opening up to a world of imaginary figments and metamorphoses.
Recently, she has been developing new work in video and performance in collaboration with artist Meirav Heiman. Carmi holds teaching positions at the Holon Institute of Technology (HIT), HaMidrasha – Faculty of the Arts in Beit Berl College and The Tel Aviv Museum’s Meyerhoff Art Education Center.
