“I am drawn to familiar objects, objects known to us from ordinary domesticity,” says Wolberger of his work. Yoram Wolberger is interested in exposing aspects of daily life that are normally overlooked. By physically inverting, slicing, or enlarging these objects, his art exposes aspects of life that we choose not see; in this regard, Wolberger shows the “familiar” in a new light, giving the subject new context and uncovering hidden or unexplained significance in the iconic objects from which he draws.
