Born 1974 in Tel Aviv, Israel
Lives and works in Los Angeles, USA
Born in Israel in 1974, Yossifor has been living in the United States since 1989. She holds an M.F.A. from the University of California, Irvine and a B.F.A. from the San Francisco Art Institute. Her work explores the effects of cultural change and identity ruptures. Using a monochromatic palette, Yossifor's gestural brushstrokes explore the tension between figure and ground, action and stillness, sign and symbol. Her paintings are not pictorial, but more physical, akin to sculpture.
