About the artist:

Osnat Yaheli-Sarbagili is a hyper-realistic painter residing in Tel Aviv. Since graduating from the Bezalel Department of Art in 2004, Osnat has created a complete visual inventory of views of waiting rooms, lobbies, and architectural spaces of abandoned office buildings. Despite their meticulous beauty, the interiors that appear in Yaheli-Sarbagili’s paintings, mummified in marble and it’s cheap substitutes, are always alienated in apperance and have a freezing presence with a lack of compassion and of human presence. These empty and oppressive architectural interiors are rendered into eternal waiting spaces, in which there is a deathly silence for those who come and go, and they also echo the private deaths and lessons in the artist’s immediate family. Osnat has displayed her work in numerous group and solo exhibitions, and it the recipient of prestigious awards. Most recently, she was awarded the independent Artists Grant by the Rabinovich Foundation for the Arts, in 2021.
