About Rotem Reshef

Rotem Reshef is a painter and installation artist based in New York and Tel Aviv.
Her work creates political and social commentary via immersive installations and paintings that relate to society’s effect on climate change and the break of trust in political leadership.

Reshef’s recent painting series as “Habitat” and “Imprints”, alongside installations as “A Heartfelt Event”, “Unraveling Earth”, “Time Traveler”, “MomDadMe” and her public art project “Eden in Two Acts”, connect between nature-inspired surroundings and political, social and cultural events, that are visually shaping moody atmospheres and emotionally-reflective environments.
