Yoram Wolberger (b. 1963, Tel Aviv, Israel) uses everyday domestic items to create his large-scale sculptures, foregrounding the latent symbolism and cultural paradigms of these objects that so subtly inform Western culture. By enlarging this ephemera to life size, Wolberger emphasizes the distortions of their original manufacture disallowing any real illusion and conceptually forcing the viewer to reconsider their meanings. Wolberger earned his MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute's (CA) New Genres Department. He has had solo exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, and his works have been acquired and featured in group exhibitions at the Brooklyn Museum of Art (NY), deCordova Sculpture Park (MA), the Aldrich Contemporary Museum (CT), Orange County Museum of Art (CA), Museum of Contemporary Art (IL), the Orange County Museum of Art (CA), Sweeney Art Gallery, University of California Riverside (CA), the McNay Art Museum (TX), and the Crocker Art Museum (CA).
