Ayelet Carmi is an artist working in painting and installation. She holds a B.F.A from the Department of Art at the Bezalel Academy, Jerusalem. Her work often features mythological figures of women and hybrids of machinery and the human form. With a background in traditional painting, her work reexamines the conventions of representation to offer a world metamorphoses and imaginary figments. She was awarded scholarships and grants by the Israeli Ministry of Education and the Lottery Arts Council.
Ayelet Carmi is the inventor of a new genre of painting all her own. Cleverly escaping the entrapments of traditional painting, her work engages in a deep and thoughtful dialogue with relational depth patterns, its highly sensitized nervous system producing art that is nuanced, lightweight and fragmentary. It is a body of work decidedly of its time, sophisticated and witty.
