THE 2009 RAPPAPORT PRIZE FOR A YOUNG ISRAELI PAINTER | MELANIE DANIEL: EVERGREEN
“Evergreen”, Melanie Daniel’s (b. 1972) new series of paintings, brings to a peak the artist’s work with images of camouflage and human blending into the environment, which combine feelings of foreignness and alienation with those of belonging. Daniel arrived at art after immigrating from Canada to Israel in 1995. Since then, she has participated in many group exhibitions in Israel and overseas, and held solo exhibitions in Sweden, New Zealand, Canada and Israel.
