Jacob Samuel presents contemporary art in modern view- Gallery for sale
Contemporary art is a u unique movement with seemingly mire definitions than creations. Mostly, the central lined of contemporary art can be drawn on the elimination way, compared to modern art (that it was born from and related to). Supposedly, contemporary art that is known for significant post-modern elements (everything is possible, everything is accepted, everything is real), tries to challenge formality, seriousness and social isolation that highly characterize modern art. However, as in Yitzhak Bashvis Zinger’s famous book, this is a love-hate story. Despite its objection to modern style, contemporary art was very much influenced by modern art, which is expressed by many similarities.
Jacob Samuel is taking the versatility of its creations one step forward. After decades in which we mostly engaged with classic art (Eastern-European Jewish art, modern art etc.), we are broadening our activity, with an Online Contemporary Gallery for sale. Nevertheless, we are not forgetting the source; we keep exhibiting modern art, contemporary art and a combination of both. Site guests will enter to the fascinating and unique world of contemporary art, based on pieces arriving to us from non-conventional countries, such as third world countries, Eastern Europe and more.
Jacob Samuel has been working over a decade in Israel and abroad. We wishe to present ideas that express our emotions in the day to day life, and showcase a wide range of artists’ pieces (regardless of gender, color or religion). Its goal is to walk gently among the various pieces while constantly searching to understand the occurrences in humanity through art and art representation.
The perception that stands behind the expansion of Jacob Samuel site to contemporary art is motivated by the fact that many audiences have certain reluctance towards the meeting with contemporary art pieces. Occasionally, the audience seeks mediation and finds it difficult to create an emotional experience from a direct unmediated meeting. Therefore, in light of our extensive experience presenting modern art through many years, we try to bridge those gaps while presenting both movements simultaneously. One in front of the other, one side by side the other. All this while seeking the personal intimate relationship with the piece and preventing puzzling, inaccessible distance.
