Orit Hofshi

Israeli, b. 1959

Orit Hofshi’s work is focused on the relation between nature and social occurrences. The monumental prints often explore extreme and rugged landscapes which are proposed as places, occupied and unoccupied, touched and untouched, but rarely fully committed in a specific context. In such dramatic natural scenes there is an emphasized sense of evolution, time and struggles, not only as records of natural phenomenon but also as reflections on human history.

Orit Hofshi: Crossing debuted March 24, 2017 at the Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum, Slovakia. Hofshi is also a recent recipient of The Jacob Pins Prize for an Israeli Graphic Artist and recently presented a number of works in an exhibition at the Israel Museum and Jerusalem Print Work Shop.

Orit Hofshi first studied at the WIZO Haifa Academy of Design and Education, Israel and continued her studies majoring in painting and printmaking at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, PA, USA in 1990. She received her MA in 2002 from University of Leeds, United Kingdom. Orit Hofshi’s work is in numerous public and private collections including The Israel Museum, Israel; Kunstsammlung im Deutschen Bundestag, Germany; Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Israel; Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts Museum, PA, USA; The Open Museum Tefen, Israel; and the Haifa Museum of Art, Israel.
