Moshé Elimelech

Biography

Expressing his fascination of the nature of duality, artist Moshe Elimelech has created a unique series of three-dimensional abstract cubic constructions that invite the viewer to reinterpret each piece. Putting into play his notion of opposing forces has yielded works that are fixed yet mutable, precise but free-flowing, analytical yet imaginative, singular in essence and at the same time open to reinterpretation.

Elimelech is a perfectionist when it comes to his contemporary cubic constructions, created using a group of approximately eight-centimeter (three-inch) cubes set seamlessly in a shadow box. On each cube he transfers sketches to select surfaces and then applies paint with precise, controlled brush strokes. Form, color, line, symmetry and pattern coalesce in a provocative interplay that invites the viewer to reposition any or all of the cubes, which can be displayed showing any of their six sides. Reassembling the cubes proves irresistible for a viewer, who is able to interact with the constrautions and thereby enjoy a shared creative experience.

Born in Morocco and raised in Israel, Moshe Elimelech was exposed to art at an early age.  A trained graphic designer, Elimelech in recent years has turned out work best described as a sophisticated synthesis of impressionistic features and architectural elements. He was selected as a contributing artist for the Los Angeles Olympics, and is a recipient of the Windsor Newton award by the Watercolor West Society. Elimelech’s designs have been featured in the museum stores of MoMA in New York, MOCA in Los Angeles, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. His work appears in private collections, and he is available for commissioned pieces. 

His most recent show was a solo installation entitled Reflections, featuring an expansive wall of mirrors, at Gallery 825 in Los Angeles (May 2008).
