Nox Contemporary Art Gallery will exhibit at CONTEXT Art Miami, showcasing leading established and emerging Israeli artists.

Nox Contemporary Art Gallery will participate in the 8th edition of CONTEXT Art Miami art fair, between December 3-8, 2019 at Miami Beach.
Nox Contemporary Art Gallery will exhibit works of seven leading Israeli artists, both established and emerging: Tzuri Gueta, Nomi Tannhauser, Jonathan Gold, Eyal Sasson, Tamar Blum Zidon, Suly B. Wolff, and Maty Grunberg. As a group, these artists offer a diverse representation of contemporary art in Israel, with a focus on the interactions between humans and the natural landscape.
With masterful examples of both traditional large-scale painting, and non-traditional treatments of industrial materials, these artists contemplate and consider the interaction between people and nature.
Gueta's museal coral object – Recover – deals with the unique natural phenomenon referred to as “coral bleaching” – a process associated with global warming in which the corals slowly lose their color. Gueta's poetic sculptural work illustrates this process, which invites us to connect with nature and feel its expression of sadness. Guetta's artworks are exhibited and sold around the world, including at the Pompidou Center in Paris, the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York, the British Victoria and Albert Museum, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and others.
Zidon's sculptures’ organic form seems to have originated from nature itself, meditating on questions of balance and connection. In the painting Memory, three stones stand as a monument of a balanced nature while echoing a form of spiritual intimacy. In addition to participating in a variety of exhibitions, Zidon created monumental installations using her unique techniques.
The artist Jonathan Gold, graduate of Rijksakademie in Amsterdam, exhibited his works in group and solo exhibitions in galleries and museums in Israel and all over the world. In his paintings there is a conflict between the space the characters reside in and their physical body, alongside a formal wandering between the figurative and the abstract that in a certain way represents the tension between the presence of the human actuality in the space and the power structures that surround it.
In Grunberg's paper artworks Erosions, he seeks to explore the hidden and internal dimension of the paper, while digging to the thin and delicate depths of it, revealing layers that are hidden from the viewers eye. These works create a third dimension with topographical and geological values with amorphic shapes, inspired by the submarine aesthetics. His artworks can be found in multiple collections around the world.
The soothing movement of the eucalyptus foliage in Wolff's paintings, deals with the exploration of the urban nature and the human perception of nature as a function, while articulating the tension between the local and the global that is inherent to the Israeli art world. Wolff has exhibited in many solo and group exhibitions in Israel, Italy, USA, India and more. Recycled materials, including plastic bags, old paintings and more, are reincarnated in Wolff's art, to create diverse concepts of beauty, patterns, aesthetics, and crafts.
Eyal Sasson, Bezalel and Royal College of London graduate, is an Israeli painter that deals with the deconstruction of the visual image. Sasson's subversive fluid painted plants combine elements of body and nature in a daring and wild combination of colors inspired by classic Japanese prints and contemporary animation and create a state of observation that is more mindful to our perception of nature. Among his many accomplishments, he has been awarded the America Israel Cultural Foundation award two consecutive years (2000, 2001).
Nomi Tannhauser, Artist and curator was born in the USA, and lives and works in Jerusalem. She is a Bezalel and Leeds University graduate, and co-founder of the Antea art gallery for Women. In her works, Tannhauser explores the intimacy of the body and its significance in a feministic, cultural and political context. In Tannhauser's series of paintings, Maidens in Blue, nudity is engaged from a unique perspective that explores the relations between the model, the painter and the viewer while committing to a dialogue with the canonical master Picasso and his contemporaries.
Nox contemporary art gallery is based in Tel-Aviv, Jaffa Port, in an impressive ancient building that was renovated by the esteemed architect Ilan Pivko.
Nox gallery is focused on contemporary Israeli and international art.
The gallery represents established mid-career and emerging artists who are creating original significant contemporary artworks in a variety of media, that includes painting, sculpture, photography, video and performance art.
Nox contemporary gallery was established in 2014 by Limor Lahav Margulis,
a curator and entrepreneur.

Exhibiting Artists

  • Jonathan Gold  (+)

    Biography : Jonathan Gold Painter and artist, lives and paints in Tel Aviv. Gold studied art in Rijksakademie in Amsterdam, in Beit-Berl art college, and Art History in Haifa University. Along the years Gold exhibited his works in group and solo exhibitions in gallerys and museums in Israel and all over the world, including CTRL Gallery in Huston, Haswellediger & co in New York, Haifa museum of Art, the Hellena Rubinstein gallery of Tel-Aviv Museum and the Martin Gropius museum in Berlin. Gold was born and raised in a Kibbutz in northern Israel and living in a communal society has been a great influence on his art, regarding the understanding that everything must exist with relation to its surrounding environment. Most of Gold's work describe relations within a group, or an attempt of the individual to place itself in modern systems of living. There is a conflict in his paintings between the space the characters reside in and their physical body, alongside a formal wandering between the figurative and the abstract that in a certain way represents the tension between the presence of the human actuality in the space and the power structures that surround it. Gold produces his paint on his own. Since 2010 Gold has been working with wax glue and pigments with a desire to seek after a medium that will replace the traditional oil paint and will enable the examination of the process of depth in the painting. Gold uses cold wax (cera colla), a technique that was used by the ancient Egyptians in Fayum mummy portraits, and that creates a flat, matt painting surface. Gold's painting technique enables a unique colourfulness and texture to the painting. Gold attempts to give a different appearance to the surface of the painting – one that stands in contrast to the materiality of the oil paint that involves working with harmful chemicals – and is characterised with a dry appearance and a prominent pigment.

    Biography : Maty Grunberg An established and respected artist, Graduated with honors from the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, with a degree in the London Academy of Art and Design. He lived and worked in London, New York and Bat Yam. Maty's artistic work is extensive and international, his works are exhibited in prestigious museums and galleries in London and New York and are found in collections around the world. Among his artistic achievements are three of his etchings which were included in a Beatles song book alongside John Lennon's poems, which he personally met. In his 3D paper artworks artist Maty Grunberg gives us a universal view, portraying the complexity and mystery of the landscape around us. Grunberg examines the hidden, intrinsic dimension of the paper itself; he delves into the depths of the flat surface to discover layers usually hidden from the viewer’s eye. Grunberg creates variable boundaries, different in their sculptural forms. The abstract images are formed to resemble a view of the sun and the moon's encounter in the sky above us.

  • Tzuri Gueta  (+)

    Biography : The underwater world is a source of inspiration for Tzuri Gueta, as expressed by his collaborations with the world's leading fashion brands, such as Chanel, Issey Miyake, Jean Paul Gaultier, Christian Lacroix, Thierry Mugler, Christian Dior, Giorgio Armani, Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton and Karl Lagerfeld; in his studies at the Department of Textile Design of the Shenkar College of Engineering and Design; and even as a young child growing up by the Givat Olga beach. At the age of three he put his head into the water, and already looked with wonderment at the magical world he had discovered: the flora, corals and reefs. Guetta's artworks are exhibited and sold around the world, including at the Pompidou Center in Paris, the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York, the British Victoria and Albert Museum, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and others. Much like a painter relates to his canvas and a sculpture to stone, Gueta considers fabric to be his foundation, a starting point for integrating art, fashion, design and textiles; into which he introduces advanced science and technological advancements of his own creation that have been registered as international patents. In this way, he fascinatingly demonstrates the potential inherent to the encounter between traditional techniques, innovative technologies and the human factor. The linkage between traditional lace fabric and his sophisticated use of silicone, and the colorful underwater motifs that are interwoven in his work, create a mesmerizing and impressive effect. His designs integrate silicone polymer with fabrics: using a complex technological process, he injects polymeric substances that pass through the fabric, creating an abundance of diverse and colorful textures.

  • Eyal Sasson  (+)

    Biography : Eyal Sasson, Bezalel and Royal College of London graduate, is an Israeli painter that deals with the deconstruction of the visual image. In his work process he is influenced by mechanichal elements of the industrial printing process and fundamental perceptions of the construction of the digital image. In each series, Sasson constructs and employs a different set of principles that dictate the mode of the image's deconstruction. Along the use of digital principals, like pixels or digital color systems – like RGB and CMYK, Sasson is influenced by the work process of the western painting throughout art history. He has used Camera Obscura and the anamorphosis technique to engage and challenge the illusionistic painting imitation strategies. The images of nature are central to his creation of a complex painting process, all while embracing W. J. T. Mitchell views of the landscape painting as a cultural representation of nature, a Genre and not a medium, and as Sasson puts it, a means to a discussion about the essence of painting. In his recent series the principals for the deconstruction are less rigid and rational and more fluid – in it, the brush strokes and painting gestures are emphasized. The re-construction of the scene in his latest works is physical, and comprised of a series of three-dimensional, acrylic painted, paper clippings – influenced by the creation process of pop-up books. Additional influences for his works are traditional Japanese prints, alongside mid-20th century graphics and contemporary comic books. In “Bathers” series, Sasson returns to a central theme in art history – the "Bathers". Unlike the modernists, who used this theme to create an ideal artistic approach and painting method, Sasson's works are reflexive, and in it the bather's image in nature, dictates the mode of painting. Sasson's bathers are fluid, immersed in the water, their image reflected in the brush strokes and colors. Sasson's starting point in the creative process a

  • Nomi Tannhauser  (+)

    Biography : Nomi Tannhauser, Artist and curator was born in the USA, and lives and works in Jerusalem. Bezalel and Leeds University graduate. Tannhauser was the co-founder of the Antea art gallery for Women. Tannhauser exhibited her works in many exhibitions in Israel and in the world. In her works, Tannhauser explores the intimacy of the body and its significance in a feministic, cultural and political context. In the painting series "Maidens in Blue" (2014), Tannhauser seeks to redefine the relation between the viewer and the subject of the painting. In this series Tannhauser chose to engage Picasso's canonical work from 1907 Les Demoiselles d'Avignon. This series is on one hand an homage to the male dynasty of painting and on the other hand an act of defiance on the ways in which women are perceived in art history – an object of desire for the male viewer – alongside an attempt of reconstruction and healing. The power relations between men and women are a central theme in Tannhauser's works. Tannhauser's search as an artist ranges from painting to social activism and she has taken part in several social struggles regarding women's rights. Tannhauser has dealt with female appearance, body image, and the attitude towards the female body, both in graphic design, and in painting. In this series Tannhauser has chosen to paint five naked women, including herself. The women are all connected to Nomi and the art world in different ways. While using the painting modes and characteristics of Picasso and his contemporaries to her needs, Tannhauser attempts to connect the women to their bodies. Tannhauser combines humour and strong colours to create a composition in which the bodies of the women are their own. The female nudity in her paintings celebrates creativity and seeks healing. The paintings attempt to display a woman's gaze on the naked women – a gaze that conjures an independent, complexed and complete individual.

  • Suly B. Wolff  (+)

    Biography : Suly Bornstein Wolff is a multi-disciplinary artist that lives and works in Tel Aviv. In her artworks she deals with the presence of nature in the urban space along the complex relationship between humans and nature. Wolff grew up in Brazil and came to Israel as a young woman. While attempting to accommodate herself to a new place, a new language, and a new culture, she was intrigued by a certain species of trees which seemed alien to the local landscape - the tropical palm trees and eucalyptus, species that had been imported and incorporated into the local landscape. The palm trees were originally intended to decorate and enrich the gardens of Tel Aviv nestled between the Bauhaus buildings. The Bauhaus juxtaposed with the palm trees (a very common juxtaposition in Tel Aviv) create a beautiful combination that echoes the foreign aspects of the two, both imported to Israel for the purpose of creating the landscape. The palm tree and the eucalyptus have a mythical presence in our culture. The palm trees are an important symbol both in Judaism and in Christianity, while the eucalyptus trees were used in the beginning of the Israeli settlement to dry swamps and prevent malaria. They both, in a certain way, represent the human perception of nature as a function, while articulating the tension between the local and the global that is inherent to the Israeli art world, and is surfacing worldwide, in our now rapidly globalizing world. Her works focus on the exploration of the urban nature, a nature that has in some ways lost its connection to its immanent organic characteristics through man's manipulation. Wolff's artworks echo the alienation of humans from nature, one that is highly linked to the urbanization of our society. As a multidisciplinary artist, she paints and sculpts, and creates objects that she merges into installations. Wolff usually uses recycled materials, including plastic bags, old paintings, deflated balloons and more. These are reincarnated in Wolff's a

    Biography : Kiki Xue Born and raised in the serene city of Chengdu, China, photographer Kiki Xue aims to express a wide range of emotions through a thorough investigation of details. Currently living and working as a fashion and art photographer in Paris, Kiki Xue has won the Photo Vogue Festival prize in Milan. As part of his fashion photography career, he works with top magazines, including Vouge Italia, Vogue China, Vogue Arabia, CR Mag, Harper's Bazaar China, Boycott and more. In his works, he aims to express himself and to convey his appreciation of beautiful, imperfect objects and people through a variety of cultural forms. He does not conceal flaws and destructed details that to his belief are an inherent part of beauty. For example, his use of wilted flowers is an act of "resurrection" for the beautiful lives that has faded away. His detailed and thought out designs and compositions encourage the viewer to stop and observe the work, which then echoes as an internal reaction in the observer. When he was young, Kiki Xue studied art with a focus on painting, which allowed him to practice the basic techniques. Even though he studied mathematics during college, which seemingly did not relate to art at all, these improved his logical thinking abilities, which allowed him to organize ideas and information. The knowledge and abilities he learned from fine arts and math enables him to “design” his photos to some extent. Most of his inspiration comes from paintings, from which he extracts different elements – mostly facial expressions – that are then combined in his photographs. In 2010 Kiki Xue started his own fashion photography business, and in 2014, he came to Paris and began his fashion photography career. Choosing emotions and self-expression as the essence of his works, the clothes featured in it are an expressive element that is also employed to that purpose. Chinese culture has shaped Kiki Xue's way of experiencing and expressing the world. His works present a

  • Tamar Blum Zidon  (+)

    Biography : Tamar Blum Zidon, Israeli painter and sculptor brings a unique approach to a mundane and usually discarded material. Using cardboard as her medium, she developed a specialized technique in which she lets her personal artistic style flourish. Her sculptures’ organic form seems to have originated from nature itself. They emulate the work of nature yet do not characteristically imitate it. The artistic process starts by piling and gluing together a myriad of cardboard sheets, creating a mass, from which she sculpts in the same manner classical sculptors’ work with stone or wood. Blum-Zidon's Cardboard contains "memories" of packaged goods, travel and change. It is utilized in infinite ways in our daily lives, and though intricately intertwined in our lives, we take it granted. Cardboard is invisible to us. Yet, she brings this material to center stage, breathing new life into it and transforming this humble substance into a valued object d’art. The sculptures are deeply beautiful in their minimalistic and fluid visual quality. Their structural simplicity compliments the material’s plainness and monochromatic color. The exposed texture is tempting the observer to touch their seductive surface. Blum -Zidon takes us on an exploratory journey: a bird’s view of the material’s topography simultaneously with a focused close-up into the minute details of the cardboard’s folds, curves and crevices. The sculptures convey the artist’s intimate engagement with nature. They seem to have frozen over the course of time, creating an artificial landscape in an enclosed space. It seems as though these forms have been here from time immemorial, eroded by the powers of nature: sun, wind and water. Blum-Zidon is in constant search for new materials and oftentimes finds new use for ordinary materials and objects from her immediate environment. Her choice of working with cardboard is not detached from the cultural context of reusing and recycling materials. Sh
