Born in 1954 in Kibbutz Givat Brenner, Israel, Yael Erlichman finds great aesthetic value in the most common human form. Making use of extraordinary technical skills and an eye for vivid and expressive details, she imbues her inanimate bronze figures with deep emotion, humor and energy which serve as a tribute to human nature and human optimism. She succeeds in combining a profound awareness of the classical tradition of expressive, figurative sculpture with a subtle, playful approach.
She works at a foundry in the Jerusalem hills and is involved in every single stage of the bronze production. Her art has been purchased by corporate and private collections worldwide and she is represented by several galleries in the USA, Canada and Europe. Yael's sculptures are a tribute to the joy of creation.
During 2011, two major works were ordered and created by Yael:
"Roots" (2.60 meters high) - The Tel-Aviv University Botanical Gardens, and "Born on the road" (2.70 meters high) - Beresheet Mizpe Ramon Boutique Hotel, overlooking the Mizpe Crater.
