Artist Info
Oren Pinhassi’s installations examine the relationship between the human figure, nature and the built environment by conjuring evocative and erotic sites that intersect public and private exchange. Pinhassi’s primary materials are plaster and sand, used for their porosity to propose fluid environments where rigid categories collapse.
