Ori Reisman

December 13, 2010

Kibbutz Tel Yosef, Israel, 1924 – Kibbutz Cabri, Israel, 1991
“I stood on the deck of the ship approaching Haifa and looked at the strong bright light, so different from the grayish light of Paris. I looked and was frightened: it was something I didn’t know how to paint… It was a kind of light I didn’t even know how to define. White, and yet – non-white.”

Ori Reisman grew up on several kibbutzim and has always been very attached to the land of Israel. He studied art at the École Nationale des Beaux-Arts, attending painter Jean Souverbie’s Monumental Art workshop. He returned to Israel where he lived on Kibbutzim but always struggled to justify his work with the Socialist lifestyles there. Reisman has exhibited all over Israel and in Paris. His early works were mainly landscapes and he began creating portriture later in life.
