REBECCA BRODSKIS

Rebecca Brodskis (b. 1988) lives and works in Paris. Born in France, she spent most of her childhood traveling between France and Morocco, following her Bohemian parents and absorbing elements of the entwined cultures. She started painting at a very young age in the atelier of her grandmother who, a painter herself, has introduced Rebecca to the mesmerizing world of brushes and pigments, as well as to traditional oil painting. Rebecca Brodskis studied painting at the Ateliers des Beaux Arts de la Ville de Paris and at Central St. Martins College of Art and Design in London (2010), and completed a Masters Degree in Sociology on the themes of vulnerabilities and social crisis (2015). The idea of an in-between state, that occured in Rebecca Brodskis' childhood and flourished in her paintings with the passage of time, comes both from her experiencing the life of continuous movement and an intermediate space at the cross-roads of empirical reality and imagination that she always found herself interested in. Her models are everybody and nobody; some of them are from artist's real life encounters, others are visitors from the imagined worlds. Her oil paintings show Brodskis' use of broad areas of colour and dramatic cropping which are enduring features of her work. Solo exhibitions include Fragments of Life, Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery, Berlin (2020); Galeriste with Hors Cadre, Paris (2019); Septième Galerie, Paris (2019); Unsettled disorders, Canopy Gallery, Netanya (2019); Dépendance, Gallery Mario Kreuzberg, Berlin (2019) and Drifting Singularities, Sputnik Gallery, Tel Aviv (2017). Group exhibitions include All the Days and Nights, Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery, London (2020); Constellations, Galerie du 6b- St-Denis, France (2019); Where we once were, Yngspc (2019); Interférence, Le Studio, Paris (2018); Five French artists, Primitive Showroom, Tel Aviv (2017); Human factor, Ori art space, Berlin (2016) and Disfiguring, figuring the unfigurable Kelenföldi Erömü, Budapest (2015).
