    Rotem Reshef is a process-based action painter, working in two and three dimensional forms, widely known for her immersive site-specific painting installations.

    Following the tradition of Abstract Expressionist painters such as Jackson Pollock, Morris Louis and Helen Frankenthaler, her work is also mentioned in reference to Mark Rothko , Christopher Wool, Sam Gilliam, Katharina Grosse, Sam Falls and Claudio Parmiggiani.

    Reshef’s practice is characterized by a “Control and Release” technique, in which she pours diluted paint on a horizontal canvas, tilting it and imprinting on it to create layered gestural compositions.

    Reshef’s imprinting technique also follows a process similar to “cameraless photography”, commonly known as photograming, but with painterly materials instead of the chemicals and light sensitive papers used in that technique.
