Lior was born in 1983, lives and works in Tel Aviv.
Lior is a multidisciplinary artist engaged in sculpture, installation, drawing and collage.
She finished her B.ed in Art and Education at Hamidrasha School of Art, Beit-Berl in 2008 and her master's degree in expressive therapies at Lesley University, Israel, in 2013.
Her works are a mix of classical art materials as oil, acrylic, pastels and ready-made, cheap, accessible materials from our daily life such as chocolate paper, glitter, gold leaf, plastic diamonds, etc. In many cases the works are inspired by the materials themselves and from the encounter, the tension between those different “high” and “low” levels of materials. The connection of these two worlds of materials allows her to experiment with ideas, play with images and invent new sets of meanings.
By reinterpreting everyday materials in an artistic context, Lior invites the viewer to enter a fantastic territory, an alchemical world, where materials and strange, bizarre imagery melt together. Lior uses the imagery of mythological hybrid creatures, animals with extraordinary physical qualities. Her works are both dark and melancholic, but also full of humor at the same time.
Other important elements in her work are the use of objects culturally loaded such as old books and toys and ritual objects such as figurines, rugs and beads. These are used as a platform that allows the viewer to tell a personal story based on known materials detection and cultural baggage inherent to them. At the same time, they invite the viewer to reflect, meditate and find a moment of tranquility.
