Hillel Roman
Born 1975 California, USA, Hillel Roman currently lives and works in Tel-Aviv, Israel. Roman's work is created by a process of repeated drawing and erasure which exploits the blank paper as a source of light, endowing it with a near sculptural presence. This technique resurrects the flat photographic sources he uses, often inspired by utopian narratives, serving and betraying them simultaneously. An MFA graduate of Goldsmiths College, University of London and graduate of Hamidrasha Art School, Beit Berl, Israel, roman also holds a BA magna cum laude from the Tel Aviv University, in the Department of Poetics and Comparative Literature. Roman has exhibited solo shows in Tel Aviv Artists' Studios and Dvir Gallery, Tel Aviv, and participated in many group exhibitions throughout the world in Städtische Galerie Bremen, Germany, Galeria BWA Zielona-Gora Poland, and in the Tel-Aviv Museum of Art, the Tefen, Museum of Art and The Third Jerusalem Drawing Biennial, Israel.
