Uri Dushy

Uri Dushy’s sculptures consist of five main series, presented in this site along with his photo collage and paintings works. The first and main series includes the public sculptures permanently positioned across cities and parks in Israel.

Uri Dushy’s work does not confine itself to the limits of his private studio, but rather exits into the public realm – into open sites frequented by bypassers and members of the community who are not necessarily familiar with museums and galleries.

His magnificent public art works are colorful, positive, understandable and intended for the eyes of all people, thus contributing to their positive outlook.
It can be said that the works reflect a positive inspiration sent from the artist to his audience, which returns the positive energy that contributes to the continuity of the artist’s creation. Projects that included the urban landscape sculptures took place in over a dozen cities across Israel, among which are Ashkelon, Holon, Petach-Tikva, Jerusalem, Rishon Le Zion, Ra’anana and more.

The second series is that of the unique wall sculptures consisting of two- dimensional clusters of figures in animated order that creates an impressive movement. The animation-like movement, which advances along the sculpture’s space, presents a narrative image situated in different urban environments.

The third series includes the small sized interior metal sculptures. Each figure is represented as a two-dimensional silhouette situated in its own sculptural environment, a base of stone or a variety of other materials, upon which it plays out its role in the narrative.

The three dimensional bronze sculptures make up the fourth series. The added dimension enriches the figures with nuances which don’t exist in the two-dimensional works. There is an element of freshness in the altered use he makes of the daily and realistic symbols he chooses.

The virtual sculpture project, “Status”, presents the fifth series which includes 2 meter high mixed media figures that expose their extreme emotional states while conducting a dialogue with classical sculpting theories.

Uri Dushy’s photo collage works have created a new artistic language. Combining details of various segments of urban reality within the framework of one picture enables to refer to specific places and events with which Dushy becomes acquainted.

Parallel to his Israeli career, Uri Dushy exhibited in one-man exhibitions around the world and participated in numerous group exhibitions and international art projects.
