Country where you live:

City where you live:

Statement : 

I am disturbed and concerned by the general numbness in our society, and through  art I seek to punch this drowsiness that we can't afford.

I believe that a work of art first and foremost evokes in us a physical sensation. A feeling which we then label with names.

When creating I think about the physical experience and body sensation I would like the work to evoke.  The  experiences may be the result of discomfort, confusion or disorientation. Is the image funny or grotesque? Is it suppressed rage or apathie? This zone of “in-betweenness” is my playground.

Two swans - from "Planted" series
Different technique on canvas 200x240 cm 2020 Two swans- from “planted” series Planted My most developed series is called “Planted”. The common denominator of this body of work is the starting point of my choice to reuse old paintings - portraits, landscape and still-lifes, works that I have done in the past. Around these existing paintings I tailor a narrative to the ”characters”, a plot that is completely new to the creation of the early painting. The portraits are of real people that I have painted from observation but the whole scene in which I ‘plant’ the portraits is invented, fabricated. The characters are inserted into a story that is not theirs, moving between different possibilities of reality. Two swans The power of youth lies in the illusion that young people often feel and that they will always remain young. A certain taken for granted mindset. While the figure of the young man expresses confidence, his being, his gaze is somewhat self-centric, the older person seems surprised by his own reflection. When I first set the two portraits next to each other I felt that this is an image that has the potential to tell a story about loneliness. Is there an age for wanting and searching love?
Twilight Zone - from "Planted" series

The characters are inserted into a story that is not theirs, moving between different possibilities of reality. Twilight Zone This work consists of 3 separate works. 2 portraits of the same model and another work capturing the vibrant cityscape of Tel Aviv. I see two opposites of the modern lifestyle - a person that is able to cope with the hectic life pace, challenges and is able to jump and grab the challenges. Oppositely, a person that is exhausted of the pace and may be swollen into the city. These two personalities can exist in the same person, side by side, couldn't they?

Or is it a voice whispering in her head that is guiding her? Every time I look at this painting I see a different story. Why is the gentleman wearing a suit and a tie while she is in a nightgown? What is the nature of the relationship?I wish to believe that this is a ground floor apartment and only a small jump of a few centimeters is separating her from her freedom. Just do it!

Bio: 

Inbar Hasson

With a background in interior design and Middle-Eastern studies, multi-disciplinary artist Inbar Hasson has lived and worked in the Netherlands since 2011. As a graduate of the Wackers Academy of Arts in Amsterdam, Hasson initially devoted herself to large-scale painting and collage, in which she seeks a tension between an appealing visual storytelling and a sense of discomfort and disorientation. Both confronting and seducing, she demands from the viewer an active gaze, rewarded with an emotional impact. 

Recently, Hasson has been developing a series of new projects under the title Background Check, where she focuses on notions of social inequality.
