Yaëlle David, born in France, lives and works between Paris and Tel-Aviv.
Born in Paris (1982).
Sometimes with humor or poetry, travelling between reality and imagination, my artwork is a revival of the “arte povera” and pop art movements, both movements dealt with making meaning out of everyday life. My work is more oriented towards intimacy with a touch of Fernanda Gomez’s freedom and audaciousness.
The aim of my work is to divert or reshape conventional things in order to offer new colors and depth to traditional “clichés”. I want to make people think about new layers in their daily lives through simple materials. By adding layers and changing contexts, I try to suggest a new point of view.
I collected materials from the streets of Paris, New York, London and Tel Aviv, with their own stories to create new colors, new shapes and new dimensions, in order to tell a new story by juxtaposing them on a canvas.
I give new life to abandoned objects that have lost their value using the collage technique that allows several layers to mix feelings and materials.
Randomness becomes destiny in a world where the intuitive and the spontaneous are measured and thought. As Antoine Lavoisier said “nothing is lost, nothing is created, everything is transformed”.
