Expansive and intimately detailed, Yizhak Elyashiv’s work investigates new patterns and horizons at the intersection of landscape and abstraction. The exhibition at the VanDernoot gallery will highlight new pieces along with selections from the internationally recognized "Handful of Grains" series.

He was the recipient of the MacColl Johnson Fellowship, a Howard Foundation fellowship for visual arts, and a RI State Council on the Arts fellowship in drawing and printmaking; he is represented by Boston’s Gallery NAGA.
