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 was born in Israel, first studying at the Wizo College of Design.  Hofshi continued her studies majoring in painting and printmaking at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, PA. She later received her MA (2002) from Leeds University, United Kingdom. Hofshi currently lives and works in Herzliya, Israel.
