Lives and works in Tel Aviv, a storyteller with a deep, pure, and unquenchable appetite for artistic self-expression. Her medium spans the gamut - sculptures, painting, typography, illustration' knitting, photography, and more - whatever works best to bring her vision to life.
Having worked as an art director for some of Israel's top agencies, Fuchs has a firm grasp on pop culture and gender roles in contemporary society, which serve as a natural backdrop against which her imagination unfurls. Her understanding of the human psyche and her fierce talent morph into moving work that takes place somewhere in between fiction and reality, capturing glimpses from wondrous perspectives.
The most central theme in her art is the female image and the various forms it can take in modern society. Her female characters are imbued with the full spectrum of human emotion and state of mind.
It's creative journalism, telling entire stories so many women could relate to with just a single portrait or illustrated moment.
What's particularly refreshing in Fuchs' work is that she doesn't try to glamorize women or turn them into mundane objects of perfection. Instead, she seeks to capture their drama, sassiness, inner confidence, unapologetic sex appeal, and unadulterated charm. In that sense, her paintings from the VIVID Serirs are reminiscent of photographs of the elusive female soul. They feel like looking through the eyes of a poet in love, capturing all the spontaneous beauty and magic streaming from those women's expressions.
Another testament to her unusual approach is her Short Stories Series, depicting faceless women in trival, yet beautifully natural moments. Fuchs puts viewers in a poetic frame of mind and lets them fill in the gaps for themselves. Her choice of colors evokes the emotion each piece is intended to capture. This series feels personal and universal at the same time. AT first glance, it may appear extremely simple, but it's the kind of simplicity that borders with genius.
Orit's oil paintings definitely lean more toward "high," somewhat trippy art, and that is the category where Fuchs's talent feel the most eclectic and unpredictable. That being said, they still feature that signature vibrancy and contemporary edginess.
Fuchs's sculptures are playful, charmingly innocent, and tastefully simplistic. They include figures of women such as Sofia the Swimmer, Miss Kate, and The Capsule, as well as Pinocchio characters and sumo wrestlers, which can breathe life even to the gloomiest of environments. Ehatever the particular characters, they are all quaint pieces of art that represent the sense of wonder and joy of life which our inner child has managed to hold onto.
Fuchs has made her presence known in the international art scene, with acclaimed projects and exhibitions in hubs like Toronto, New York, Miami, Los Angeles, and Tokyo.
