Lives and Works in Tel Aviv, Israel



Sculptor, painter, draughtsman, thinker and teacher, Zvi Lachman proves just how eclectic, diverse, and wide ranging the new figurative art can be. In his work on heads, in his exhibition "Ransom of the Father," in his works on paper, and in his explorative thinking about art, Lachman challenges the various orthodoxies currently reigning in contemporary Israeli art. In this age of reason and psychology, Lachman works against a general climate in which realism, autobiographical confession and ready-made, consumer art hold sway: his work engages archaic, classical and baroque traditions rather than celebrating the sharply defined object. Furthermore, in a climate that often associates identity with a direct response to Israeli politics and thematics, Lachman rejects such demands, finding his identity and his citizenship in his re-construction of traditional forms and subjects within an eclectic, multicultural art.
