Gil Yefman

 

Gil Yefman's collection of bizarre dolls is the reflection of an inner reality, a substitute of sorts for the real world.  The individual story that accompanies each doll, and its "private tale of suffering," are related to the artist's emotional state during the process of knitting - a state that "seals their fate," in his own words. "For me, these dolls have been a kind of revelation, an alternative to friends, children, family. They live in lonely and self-enclosed worlds - in a dream-like, allegorical bubble where things that would never occur in reality take place."                          

Born in Kiryat Tivon, 1979; lives and works in Har Adar
