Rotem Gridish, Tel-Aviv based artist. She is a multidisciplinary designer caught up between creation of abstractive beauty to functionality. Her artistic process is pushed by curiosity, discovering why things are what they are- what are her feelings made of and what influences them.
Rotem facing those feelings through art techniques with matter, textures, objects and light to give them some kind of form, then she compositing them to create a scene and traveling between realism and surreal to create a portrait of her world
Rotem very fascinated by light and shadow, how light hits the matter and how it observes it,
how a different temperature and balance of light and shadow can affect the way we see things, the symbolic and psychological side of exposure and hidden.
In her art Rotem creates abstract spaces with conflicts of in and out.
“As a shy person, those conflicts are my everyday struggles- what I'm willing to expose about myself and how much of it I am keeping inside.”
Rotem has roots of influence from great artists like Hockney, Mattise and Magritte but in her day life If she feels something about what she sees, touches or hears- it may become a part of her work.
Creating digital art ( cinema 4d and adobe softwares), “allows you to get wrong more often without fear”. She loves the idea that you can choose your mistake.
As her own wish in her art,Rotem wants people to get curious about the space they are seeing, to be drawn by the drama, and figure out what they feel- is it peaceful? is it disturbing?
