Matan Ben Cnaan: Paintings

The 2017 Haim Shiff Prize for Figurative - Realist Art

 

Matan Ben Cnaan (b. 1980) combines figurative language with classical and
contemporary concepts, maintaining boundary-crossing contexts even when
he deals with local light and landscape. Biblical themes are his trigger for charged situations with personal interpretation. Ben Cnaan places these myths in a banal reality, deconstructing them from their heroic
representations. In 2015 Ben Cnaan won the National Gallery's BP Portrait Award for his painting Annabelle and Guy (2014).
