Lot description
Eliezer Sonnenschein’s large and commanding digital c-print mural presents a cheerful collage of interacting figures and scenes that, upon first glance, work together in an idealistic landscape. Typical of Sonnenschein’s work, however, this seemingly exuberant playground consists of an assortment of alarming and ominous images that reveal darker undertones in Sonnenschein’s tale. Here, fire, blood, violence, and multi-headed demons fill the composition. Though exhibited within an airy setting, this shocking narrative alludes to the artist’s turbulent experiences.

Born and raised in Israel where he continues to reside, contemporary artist Eliezer Sonnenschein (b.1967) uses his art to come to terms with the personal and political turmoil he has experienced. Creating imaginative digital landscapes that recall unremitting media images and invented utopia images, Sonnenschein represents current global circumstances through a personal perspective. Sonnenschein earned his BFA in Graphic Design in 1994 from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem, Israel, where he was awarded the Sandberg Prize for special achievements. In 2000, he received the Young Artist Award from the Israeli Ministry of Education and Culture and in 2009 he was further honored with the Israeli ministry of Culture Award. His work has appeared in numerous exhibitions throughout the world and was the subject of recent solo shows at Sommer Contemporary Art, Tel-Aviv, Israel (2011); Jerome Zodo Contemporary, Milan, Italy (2011); Krinzinger Projekte, Vienna, Austria (2010); Bianca Sotto Galerie, Madrid, Spain (2008); and Natalie Obadia Gallery, Paris, France (2006).
