Yehiel's three-dimensional interpretations of natural objects lean on a craft that has been used for thousands of years. Yet he aspires to release it from the two-dimensional fabric, give it volume and offer a contemporary voice.
Freehand machine embroidery and hand stitching enable the artist to propose a fresh perspective on embroidery, as well as a new portrayal of natural motifs.
By using carefully thought-out framing and creating an illusion of hovering, he amplifies the tension between the ancient craft and the contemporary creations, while arousing intrigue and curiosity.
His works are a show-stopper. People walking past the gallery always halt and stare through the window at these delicate and surprising works.
