Shirly Bar-Amotz

About Artist


Bar-Amotz was born in 1974 on Kibbutz Ma'abarot, where she still lives and where her studio is located, on the first floor of the building which formerly housed the first children's house on the kibbutz: a Bauhaus structure from the 1930s which looks out on the surrounding fields. Since she finished her degree at Bezalel, Bar-Amotz has met with success and international recognition. Her work is displayed in museums and galleries in Israel and abroad, and last month she was awarded the prestigious 2012 Andy Prize for Decorative Art, established by Charles Bronfman and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. The award carries a NIS 50,000 prize, an exhibit at the museum next year and the purchase of two works for the permanent collections at the Tel Aviv Museum and the Israel Museum in Jerusalem.
