About the Artist: Tel Aviv-based artist Orly Maiberg (b.1958) has spent her career exploring the tensions and harmonies between nature and the human figure. The scale of these figures has vacillated dramatically depending on the intentions of the series, from occupying the majority of the canvas in her “Bedroom Eyes” series from the early aughts, to being drawfed by sublime and tumultuous surroundings in her recent works currently on view in “Where Do We Go from Here” at Los Angeles’s Shoshana Wayne Gallery. Maiberg’s works have been featured in exhibitions at the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, the Israel Museum, and the Haifa Museum of Art.

i find the presence of figures in the paintings "precious" in a bad way. i like the abstracts, but when i realized they all have tiny figures planted in the "landscape" of the abstract, i was turned off. of course, that doesn't mean everyone will have a similar reaction.
