Orit Hofshi: Deep Time

Orit Hofshi is one of a number of contemporary artists who embrace printmaking processes in the production of expansive works that are materially visceral, politically smart and emotionally compelling. In the vein of Anselm Kiefer, Christiane Baumgartner, Swoon and Nicola López, Hofshi employs the tools and techniques of relief printmaking and matrices on an expansive scale, and like them she uses her work to address the moral and political complexities of her cultural inheritance. For Hofshi as an Israeli, this encompasses not just ethnic conflict but the fundaments of land, water and time.
