Bahat’s style and spirit guides -- Rembrandt, Caravaggio, Vermeer, perhaps Whistler, and a hint of Bill Viola -- are Old Masters who when not on commission but rather on their own time painted the regular people known to them, the household staff, the maids, guards, and farmers. In Bahat’s quest to prove that beauty is for everyone, her work has become increasingly exotic and ambitious, diverse and inclusive. “Working with animals, children, and untrained actors,” she laughs. “It’s alive, unpredictable. One time, a baboon grabbed the paintbrush and went for the easel -- and it was all her own idea!” She is committed to using people from her own life as her models rather than professionals. (The animals handlers are pros.) “As I transform them into art, I bring them into my world. The photographs are our relationships.” Believing that art lives in the humanity of everyday people, she creates her work by measuring this magnanimity against art history, concluding that prettiness doesn’t leave a lot of room for imagination.

Los Angeles @ Stati Uniti

Tami Bahat (b.1979) is a fine art photographer from Tel Aviv, Israel. Raised by a former dancer and a graphic artist, Bahat’s family resettled in Los Angeles when she was young. Championed by parents who encouraged her artistic expression, she acquired a stronger knowledge of herself and others through experimentation in various media. Bahat's work has been shown in galleries and museums worldwide. Recently Bahat exhibited at the Crocker Museum in Sacramento and was part of the Young Masters Art Prize exhibition at the Cynthia Corbett Galley in London.
