Aya Eliav's works evoke elements of nature that could be situated in the nebulous limits between figurative and abstract, where the lines and the volumes establish a dialogue with the forms that seem to represent lost landscapes, dry trees and detached roots. She uses the observation in nature as a metaphor to individual or collective identity and memory, capturing the represented object submerged in shadows.
Eliav graduated in visual communication at the academy of fine arts “Bezalel” and at the Academy of Fine Arts of Rome.
Since 2005 she works as an independent artist, as a multimedia artist exhibiting world wide solo and group exhibitions.
