Anne Francoise Ben-Or in The National Portrait Gallery (London) and at The Obsession of Art (Bergen)
Work of Anne Francoise Ben-Or has been selected in the prestigious BP Portrait Award Competition 2017 for exhibition at The National Portrait Gallery in London.
From July 9: In parallel with this very special show, The Obsession of Art shows various works by this famous Israeli artist. The work of Anne Francoise shows deep emotionality and unpolished vulnerability. It gives a powerful message of human dignity and peace
She found great stimulus at the Jerusalem Studio School, with the famous master Israel Hersberg. Vulnerability and harmony are essential drivers for Anne Francoise. The vulnerability that enables people to live together in dignity so much better. The harmony of a world in peace. To show this profound message in her works she ‘snaps’ her subjects in the moments when tenderness of deeper inner experiences radiate in the most magical way. Her perception shows irresistible, again and again the pureness of each wonderful first discovery.
