Avital Burg, a Brooklyn-based artist and writer from Tel Aviv, creates highly personal works using references from art history and from her own experiences. Burg paints her studio’s physical surroundings, such as the walls and floor, using dense paint textures on the verge of relief. Symbolic and enigmatic, her carefully crafted canvases appear to be spontaneous and somewhat precarious, as they recall legends and traditions of the past and reflect on present day.
Burg’s work has recently been shown in solo shows at Slag Gallery, Brooklyn; at the Neve Schechter Gallery, Tel Aviv; and in a two-person exhibit at Arts at AJU, Los Angeles, and Club Caltural Matienzo, Buenos Aires. Her work has also featured in the Greenpoint Film Festival, Brooklyn, as well as in several group shows in New York and Tel Aviv. She was the artist in residence of the Peleh Residency in California in 2019. Burg’s work is part of many collections worldwide, among them the Louis-Dreyfus Family Collection, NY, The Bank Leumi art collection, Israel, and the Mr. Dov Shiff collection, Israel. Burg attended the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem, “Hatahana” school of figurative drawing and painting, Tel Aviv, The Slade School of Art, London, and the New York Studio School.
